On his way to modern-izing the words of Shakespeare, playwright Mauricio is stranded in Portland by the Post-Election Riots of November 2016. Under the aura of Leonard Cohen’s death and amidst the civil unrest, he finds shelter with an extended family in the Pearl District, where he listens to new voices of Politix, Friendship, Gender, Hip-hop, Political Correctness…and Love. Will Mauricio negotiate this well enough to carry on the road ahead? While wondering: Will California really solve Portland’s traffic jams? Did Shakespeare actually write all 37 plays? Can Zombies become friends with Vegans?
