Theatre Forever (formerly Jon Ferguson Theater) presents The Brutes, a new tragic comedy conceived and directed by Jon Ferguson, created with the ensemble, with text by Dominic Orlando. June - 7th - 30th at a machine shop, 2204 Minnehaha Ave, Minneapolis.
a machine shop is a found industrial space taken over and currently being transformed by Theatre Forever and The Brutes artistic team. Beginning June 7th it will be the bunker-nation of an unnamed war-ravaged country where the last remnant of a citizens' army awaits the end of a long and drawn out war. Centuries of brutal boundary disputes have shrunk their country to its bitter nubthis bunker, this scattered remnant, is all that's left of a once proud nation.
From within their shrinking, one-room no man's land, surrounded by endless war and warlords, they eagerly await news from the front, seek international recognition from anyone who will listen, and cling desperately to the physical remnants and fragmented memories of their country. Highly physical and poetic, The Brutes explores the lengths to which we will go to survive, to retain hope, and to protect ourselves and those we cherish from the poisons of war.
Adults audience due to violence and language.
