Freedom Club

Philadelphia's OBIE award-winning New Paradise Laboratories and New York's Riot Group ( led by playwright and Burlington-born Adriano Shaplin) will present 6 workshop performances of their new production, Freedom Club at Off Center for the Dramatic Arts, Burlington, VT. August 12 through the 20th.


A fierce, undead tension animates the American frontier: the struggle between the freedom of the individual and the question of who or what belongs to the club. Freedom Club is a savage comedy about the delirium and danger in American extremism, a hallucination on national themes. It time-travels from a feverish dream-play starring Shakespearean assassin John Wilkes Booth and Abraham Lincoln to Virginia, 2015, where a determined group of self-styled radicals are rapidly coming unglued.
