About Actions and Objectives
Just when things had seemed to calm down in Hawboro (Providence Gap, Common Enemy, Radiunt Abundunt) after the recent unpleasantness concerning the Zebulon Zebras, a theater company announces plans to develop a play to celebrate the town’s sesquicentennial. As they probe the official story and rehearse the drama, the contemporary concerns of the artists and the community begin to parallel the struggles of the city’s first citizens. From Reconstruction to Black Lives Matter, the line between the present and past, rehearsal and reality begins to blur as new truths emerge and tempers flare. In the tradition of Common Enemy, this world premiere drama returns Triad audiences to the town of Hawboro for a bold exploration of the contemporary South. Contains adult language and themes.
