Midnight Brainwash Revival
“Midnight Brainwash Revival” takes place in Moab, Utah, where a crazy mixture of pre-millennial events are cooking up: the only good man in town is lost on a climb in the Himalayas; an evil developer, Mordecon, threatens to turn the city into a toxic waste dump; messiahs are popping up left and right; desperate tourists are joining cults in hopes of seeing the messiah; and paranoid truckers are hatching plots to ignite the natural uranium in the desert in order to stop the Silicon Sexuality Matrix. Add to this a healthy mix of eco-terrorism, computer glitches, cross-dressing romance, and the legendary antics of that desert madman, Coyote, and you have a wild and realistic depiction of life during ‘The End-Times.’
This play requires 12 actors with some cross-casting.
It has been produced a number of times by Inverse Theater in various locations in NYC (that production’s page is here), and also by Fools Fury Theater Company in SF (in 2002).
