Unabomber makes his worldwide stage debut in this adaptation
of the short story that he
wrote in prison for Off! Magazine. The staging of this controversial
parable was a historic event for CRIME SCENE as it was the first to be written by
an actual (convicted) criminal!
It's the story of a boatload
of politically correct passengers and crew, unwittingly at the mercy of the treacherous
Captain and his Mates who have set the course for the ship far to the North into dangerous
icebergs and floes. While the passengers and crew complain about working conditions, not
enough blankets, kicking the dog and the right to suck cocks publicly, only the Cabin
Boy (played by Ted himself!) can see that the troubles ahead out-weight any of these other
issues. Do they listen to his call for a violent up rise? Or do they smash
straight into an iceberg and die? What do you think?
He's a Unabomber and a Cabin Boy!
He's an Anglo Sailor!
He's a Mexican Sailor!
He's an Injun Sailor!
She's an Animal Lover!
