Kids prepare for impending doom in new Persephone dark comedy
It’s not a simple task for adults to play kids onstage, especially when those kids are trying to come to grips with their doomed world.
Persephone Theatre’s next main stage production is the world premiere of WROL (Without Rule of Law), a dark comedy coming-of-age story for a group of eighth-grade kids preparing for the ruined world they expect to inhabit as adults.
“When I was a kid, I didn’t think two thoughts about the environment,” performer Kristina Hughes said. “It wasn’t a concern that I had. But now, it’s all kids can think about.”
