THE FURY OF THE GODS
Written and performed by Susana Cook, with sound design by Julian Mesri.

The Fury of the Gods is an exercise in pop blasphemy. An ecclesiastical experiment in heathenism. A sharp, biting satire that skewers the sacred. Written during the dark era of Bush’s government and the ascent of the right-wing theocracy in the US. this performance looks at and satirizes the center from the point of view of the periphery, by claiming a right to self-representation onstage.
