A California Repertory Production

A recession. Unemployment is rife, the economy is flat-lining and people are partying until they drop. Between the rollercoasters and the merry-go-rounds, the freak-shows and the blaring music, the ice-cream stalls and booze, the lives of the newly engaged couple Cash and Caroline spin out of control. In short scenes, Stephens depicts the isolation and creeping disintegration of a society that is stuck on an endless merry-go-round: a world of brutality and banality; where every emotion is determined by economics; and where people’s dreams are completely shaped by consumerism. In such a world, what chance does love have?

Directed by New York theatre maker Will Detlefsen who was awarded the 2013 Drama League Fellowship and has worked recently with Tony Taccone on Angels in America at Berkeley Rep.
