Synopsis

Otterbein College Theatre will end its season with the world premiere of an original play. On May 24, Otterbein will open Catnap Allegiance by noted playwright Kia Corthron. With language that is sparse and poetic, Corthron’s plays are hard-hitting and unrelenting. Her plays address political issues, yet they also transcend the political and capture the essence of the human struggle. Catnap Allegiance protests the Gulf War with the story of several African American soldiers deposited in the middle of the desert, pumped full of inadequately explained medicines and ordered to “take no prisoners...eliminate and go.”
