OTHERWORLD THEATRE PRESENTS: MESSINA 3004 (A SCI-FI ADAPTATION OF MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING)

February 5, 2016 @ 7:30 pm - February 28, 2016 @ 4:00 pm

| $20

THE SYNOPSIS

In the year 3004, humankind is left to rebuild a world that has been ravaged by war, poverty, and disease. From these ashes arise two opposing political powers: The Moralists who value order and reason and The Revolutionaries who value free expression.

Two years have passed since these political enemies have met face to face. Join us now in Messina as either a Moralist or a Revolutionary as you navigate a story of brotherly foes, requited romance, and slanderous villainy.

Audience Members will be equipped with government sanctioned medication to survive this destitute world. CAUTION: New users have reported hallucinatory side effects.

Whether you join us as a Moralist or a Revolutionary, welcome to Messina.
