Commutator Collective presents “PHYLLOXERA!” a new play about the Great French Wine Blight. Follow two French sisters and their genderqueer sibling as they face off against flamethrower-wielding German vintners, an amoral American aphid, and a foreign trade crisis in the greatest showdown of the mid-19th century. Local wine specialist Solar Champion will host an evening of casual theatregoing, heavy drinking, and the history of a canonically-neglected catastrophe. Fueled by close proximity to bowling and strategically-organized wine discounts for ticket holders, Commutator Collective will explore this viticultural tragedy in all of its grapey goriness.
“PHYLLOXERA!” will be presented on 4 weekend evenings + 1 Monday industry night (because wine + theatre = awesome).
