fresh in the miracle of birth, your eyes were the universe

The Other Side of the Flood (shows)

Solo performance of spoken word musical theatre
by David Lee Morgan, a UK and BBC Poetry Slam champion. 

A computer wakes up in year 2035 on the eve of the world socialist revolution… Fighting has broken out all over the globe. For the first time, the US military has used tactical nuclear weapons on its own population to destroy the Los Angeles Commune. Suddenly, all communication stops. A new player arrives on the scene, a singularity, a computer exploding up into consciousness and fighting for sanity through a barrage of conflicting images and downloaded personalities.

The play follows the intertwined stories of Hamida, a leader in the South Asian Socialist Alliance, her daughter Sulthana – and Amparo, a leader in the Los Angeles Commune and her son Jesse.
