EVERYONE AGREES IT’S ABOUT TO EXPLODE (EAIATE) is an immersive theater production about radical politics, factionalism, the allures of power, and the role of the arts in political change. Under the cover of darkness, members of a small leftist insurrectionary group sneak into a vacant building in order to hold their meeting and plan their anarchist activities. The audience is cast as new recruits in the group, and at first, the meeting goes as planned. But as old arguments surface, the group finds itself on the brink of collapse.
Originally devised with the ensemble, EAIATE pits conflicting ideologies against one another and asks the audience to consider their place in these timeless conflicts. Everyone agrees that the correct answer is always a synthesis of many possible answers.
EVERYONE AGREES IT’S ABOUT TO EXPLODE is an immersive, site-specific work. Audience members should expect to be touched and interacted with directly. Trigger warning for gun violence, dark spaces, loud noises, and suicide/self-harm.
EAIATE will take place Thursdays – Sundays, March 12 – April 5 in Lincoln Height, LA (Location to be distributed once tickets are purchased – please note that this location is not wheelchair accessible). The runtime is approximately 105 minutes.
Tickets are $55 and can be purchased here (please note: a limited number of $20 income accessibility tickets will be released for each show. Tickets will go on sale at 10am on Wednesday, February 19th).
