An ensemble-devised piece of political theater exploring the history of the 1960s radical group, The Weather Underground. Disgusted by the Vietnam War and the government’s repression of those seeking equality domestically, a handful of leaders from the 1960s student movement seized control of Students for a Democratic Society and reshaped it in the name of overthrowing the United States government. Believing violence to be the only means to a true and lasting peace, these passionate idealists accelerated a movement to its fervor, but left a country behind.

“A cutting-edge young theater collective…Intense and thoughtful direction guides us through two decades of the group’s history….By the end we have witnessed a sort of sociological big bang, when this tight, angry ball of political energy suddenly bursts and disbands irreparably.”
–The New York Times (Critic’s Pick)

“An intelligent and dynamic package…The ensemble’s connection with one another is the truest homage they could offer to the memory of the collective they have clearly, though reservedly, come to admire.”
–Backstage Magazine (Critic’s Pick)

Impressively researched and clear-eyed, home/sick shows us the Underground’s internal contradictions, and we see Bolshevik passion lapsing into self-delusion and then flaring up again, until we are unsure what to admire and what to deplore.”
–TimeOut NY

“….invites us to take a close-up look at the fiery rhetoric of another era’s radical fringe and to measure the distance from our own aspirations….an absorbing, critical-minded narrative.”
–The Village Voice
