Over a year in the making, Purple Electric Play (PEP!) is Machine Project’s newest collaboration with visionary playwright and psychic Asher Hartman. Commissioned specifically for the Machine Project’s 17 seat underground theatre, PEP! will delight and bewilder the audience with performances of mind-melting intensity.
In a mix of black light theater and black magic, PEP! follows two underground entertainers, THE VITAL ORGAN and THE STAR, as they step in and out of rough and ridiculous political histories, assisted by their pals, THE AUDIENCE, four naive and playful puppets, LO-PHAT, DONKEY, SALAD BAR and STARVATION luring their live audience deeper into the morass of questions and confrontations that arise from memories of injustice and revolt. PEP! explicitly leverages an audience’s expectation of diversion and excitement to explore the relationship of the creative class to privilege and power, both as resistors and provocateurs.
Are you the kind of person who wishes Machine Project was just a little more intense, overwhelming and delirious? Have we got a play for you!
