Jack of Cups


Written by Gabriel Rodriguez
Directed by Madeline Wall and Gabriel Rodriguez

Mainstage, 2019

Many years from now — long after The Wave That Eats The World — a stranger, queerer, more loving world has sprouted from the sodden rubble and ruins: a world called Mother Ocean. Once a year, the many communities of this new world become one by making the perilous pilgrimage to a barren island for the Remembrance Festival. Amidst the food and drink and games, the sharing of knowledge and the telling of Big Stories, the people of Mother Ocean are visited by a mysterious and legendary wanderer who comes to tell the biggest Big Story they have: their post-apocalyptic creation myth.
