Written over the course of the last two years, Kev Berry’s THE ORANGE TERROR CYCLE (PART 1), is an election night victory party gone awry. This celebration-turned-support group tracks one artist’s journey from feeling hopeful, to helpless, and with hard work, back to that same initial hope. Backed by a Greek chorus who join Berry in performing his anxiety and joy, these 20 monologues ask, answer, and transform what it means to tell stories in such troubled times.
