The Beast of Times

The Beast of Times is a queer political allegory that explores the contradictions and pains of coming to political consciousness in a world where environmental and ethnic diversity are fast diminishing. The play, in which radicalized animals put humans on trial, follows the story of two protaginists-- a dog and a cat-- at odds with each other. One is impassioned about her politicization and joining "the movement," and the other is satisfied with her "creature comforts." Beast uses pointed humor and stark drama to expose the human love of greed and greed for love, in addition to the devastating effects of environmental degradation on the planet's non-human inhabitants.
