"Corn Cobbers" - 2013 SFFS Fall Middle School Play
"Corn Cobbers - an Orwellian capitalist allegory for Middle Schoolers"
The 2013 San Francisco Friends School Fall Middle School Play .

Four Performances: THURS, 11/21 @ 7p, FRI, 11/22 @ 7p, SAT, 11/23@ 1p AND @ 5p

An original play commissioned especially for our school's opening of the new BLACK BOX THEATER!
By playwright Krista Knight and composer Barry Brinegar.
Directed by Jon Burnett with live accompaniment by Garth Applegate. Features 19 fifth through eighth graders of SFFS

"Cuts in public funding bring a middle school to the brink of closing  until it's taken over by corporate stooges from the mega corn conglomerate Cornco. The company wants the middle schoolers to do a play of its idealized origin story to shill their products and indoctrinate the institution. But a couple of smart students hatch a plan and subvert Cornco's agenda by reenacting the story of Animal Farm, and the growing corporatization of US agriculture, instead. An Orwellian Hee Haw capitalist allegory with music."

Not recommended for under the age of 9. Parental discretion advised: dark content.
Will have a 10 min intermission.
Will run about one hour and twenty minutes (approximately 1'20" long).
Concessions will be sold.
