Wellesley Girl
By Brendan Pelsue.
Directed by James Fleming
January 15-February 5th, 2022

Recommended Signage (3).JPG

It is  2465. American Politics hasn't changed much. Except that "America" is now only a handful of New England towns in a walled-in citadel due to a global environmental disaster. The population is so small that everyone is a member of Congress. An unidentified army has encamped at the border. All members of Congress must move beyond personal agendas and petty bickering and decide the nation's fate. And it is snowing. 

 

​This is a play about politics, and like politics, it's funny until it suddenly isn't.

"Wellesley Girl" is one incredibly dystopian piece of political theater" - New City Stage 

“Wellesley Girl” is "a sharp 90 plus minutes of seeing what could happen to our world” and "an interesting work that will have you thinking about where are are today and what we might do to make sure we head in the right direction.”- AroundtheTownChicago.com
