The Village, with it's quiet, shaded streets, lined with lovely brick and brownstone townhouses, was once the incubating ground of artistic, social and political movements that have helped shape US history. From the Beats to the Folk Movement, from workers rights to gay rights, the Village has often been the center of it all.

Home to some of the city's most iconic architecture, from Gothic to Post-Modern and from Beaux-Arts to Art Deco (lots of Art Deco). it's not difficult to understand why. But just behind the massive facades, lie facinating histories just waiting to be unveiled.

The area around the High Line Park was a vital business district of New York City, supplying fresh fruits, French Cheeses and Russian caviar as well as fresh meats to City markets. The hustle and bustle of the streets induced the City to elevate the railroad trains delivering goods to the commercial buildings. When interstate truck traffic made the railway outdated, it fell into ruin, only to be regenerated as a park.

It’s 2013, Obama has just been re-elected, and The Republican Party finally realizes it has a problem with race. In an attempt to win the 2016 presidential election, the GOP backs a candidate who is a mixture of every race on earth. Christopher Chen's wild and surreal comedy skewers all political parties to the point it becomes indiscernible of what is satire – and what is today’s frightening reality. This production is part of The College of Performing Arts' School of Drama New Visions Directing Festival.
