Shirin is working on a book about post-Occupy Wall Street grassroots movements, while trying not to succumb to anxiety attacks over the state of the world. CJ is a public defender navigating our utterly fucked up judicial system, while trying to find time for a meaningful personal life. Elizabeth needs to finish college and figure out what to do next. Oh, also, there's a mysterious bug infestation in the kitchen and Shirin might be considering... organized religion? Hashtag Millennials, amirite? A PLAY TITLED AFTER... is a play for anyone who may be new to civil disobedience, protesting, or activism; a battle cry for those who find themselves awakening to a world order that will remain profoundly unjust unless each person commits to radically re-envisioning what it means to be a citizen.
