In RUSTBELT: 2014, a toxic spill serves as the stark backdrop to a love story set in ‘Chemical Valley’, and despite the heavy presence of the spill’s dangerous consequences, an unexpected humanity arises from the page. Archetypes and anti-heroes wrestle with ideals, policy, community and corruption in this reading directed by Susan M. Gardner. This work hopes to give voice to those in America living with inadequate drinking water, which disrupts a sense of place and shatters communities.
Damon W. Arrington, the playwright and a professional Landscape Designer, will present his design strategy for chemical superfund sites after the reading and will be taking questions from the community about the approach.
