Work in Progress, a new play by Senior Ross Barron, engages with questions of love, loss, and death. Artie, an author, and Allen, his character, find themselves at odds in how they think their story should end. Allen will do everything he can to change the fate that has been written for him, and Artie will try to stop him because that's not how it happened. What neither of them realize is that it's not really even up to them, it's up to the woman they both love.
An event that builds and deconstructs a party to reveal the dissonances propagated in the human pursuit of technology and progress. Themes of nature, classism, and oppression bubble up from chthonic depths like fresh champagne in this multimedia production.
