CANNIBALS ALONE at Theatre Unleashed

Dystopia often seems the most dramatically effective way for fiction to make a political argument. Please forgive the dryness of that sentence and bear with me.

In the wake of the 2016 Presidential Election, the theatre community in Los Angeles (and no doubt elsewhere) wants to react.  I'm part of that community. Believe me, you can taste it in the air.  Cannibals Alone at Theatre Unleashed marks the first such I've seen in 2017 (at least one other event happened but I couldn't make it).  And as you perhaps might guess from the opening, the play makes for a powerful dystopia.
