WEST COAST PREMIERE! China is not kidding.  It's time to go.  It's 2017. Crushing national debt and debilitating unemployment have compelled the United States to sell Florida to China for five trillion dollars. The South Florida Christian Militia is leading an insurgency in the Everglades to oust the Chinese. How far will they go to keep the States united? This darkly comedic, high-octane political allegory is a West Coast Premiere.

RAVES FROM THE SACRED FOOLS PRODUCTION:

"Satire can make unpalatable truths digestible. Sacred Fools Theatre Company has always been one to push the boundaries... With their latest show, the west-coast premiere of Ken Ferrigni’s Occupation, they successfully lure frivolity into something more unsavory... While all performances are rich and believable, the women here are particularly magnetic... DeAnne Millais’ set effectively transports the audience... When you apply the play’s supposedly absurd circumstances to current events, the comedic veil lifts, leaving one with an Orwellian unease." -Stage Raw (PICK OF THE WEEK)

"I was enthralled from the git-go... witty and profound... Don't wait to see this West Coast Premiere! Everybody will be talking about it." -Discover Hollywood

RAVES FROM THE ORIGINAL PRODUCTION:

"Idiocracy-meets-Red Dawn doesn't begin to cover the result: The exciting young playwright Ken Ferrigni blends redneck caricature with hip-hop anarchy and giddy pessimism to create a suicide vest of a satire." -New York Magazine

"...a powerful, insightful, cynical, and timely take on survival. One sure footed absurdity follows the next. Language is sinewy with some speeches so unique and well crafted I find myself searching them out in a supplied script for the sheer pleasure of revisiting." -WomenAroundTown.com

Sacred Fools is the birthplace of the L.A. stage hits The Behavior of Broadus, Absolutely Filthy, Stoneface, the Watson plays, Land of the Tigers, and Louis & Keely: Live at the Sahara. Please join us for our 18th season of critically acclaimed, award-winning theatre.
This organization is supported, in part, by the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors through the Los Angeles County Arts Commission.
