“People Sitting In Darkness”
by Clarence Coo
directed by Pirrone Yousefzadeh
In this comic adaptation of “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” set in the early 20th-century Philippines, a small town prepares to stage a performance for their American occupiers. Their play, based on an American novel about a young boy and an escaped slave rafting down the Mississippi, will either earn the townspeople their freedom — or more trouble from the US military.
