The unconventional plotline shatters audience expectations of a pleasant ending. Production Dates: Opens Friday February 25, 2011 and runs Fridays/Saturdays at 8pm - Sundays at 2pm through March 20, 2011. Plot Breakdown: In grim Gotham-like city of the future, a 20-year drought has occurred. As a result, the government has banned private toiletries and the citizens must use pay-to-pee toilets regulated by a monopolistic company, the Urine Good Company, which charges exorbitant prices. Bobby Strong, the assistant custodian at the poorest urinal in town, decides enough is enough. With the help of the daughter of the CEO of the Urine Good Company, Hope Cladwell, Bobby ends up leading a rebellion, which frees the citizens. This is a very choral show, so those who enjoy choral singing will have a great time. If you have any questions, you may contact director, Clifford Parrish at (908) 696 0411 or on Facebook.
