FEATURED PROJECT

O.P.C. (Obsessive Political Correctness)


OPCEve’s newest play O.P.C. (Obsessive Political Correctness) is Directed by Pesha Rdudnik and will make it’s world premier at American Repertory Theater in late November. It stars:
- Olivia Thirlby
- Nicole Lowrance
- Liz Mikel
- Peter Porte
- Babak Tafti
- Melissa Leo
- David Thornton
- Nancy Linehan Charles

O.P.C. is an exploration of consumption and politics that asks, “How are we to survive as a species if we insist on destroying the world we love?” A dumpster-diving freegan (Thirlby) is doing just fine squatting in an abandoned apartment, but when her mother (Leo), a candidate running for the Senate, tries to make her toe the party line, radicalism comes into collision with mainstream liberalism. Mother and daughter wrestle with the inconvenient truths at the heart of consumer culture, tossed between political compromise and “obsessive political correctness.”

The play will run at the A.R.T. From November 28 – January 4. www.americanrepertorytheater.org

In the Body of the World:
A Memoir of Cancer and Connection

InTheBodyOfTheWorldBookCover“Ensler has written a profound and vulnerable book, full of tenderness and strength. I was amazed by the clarity of her vision and the power of her message about the body and self. This book isn’t meant only for patients; it is meant for anyone whose life has intersected with illness—in short, for all of us.”
—Siddhartha Mukherjee
