Jericho

Presented by MALAPROP Theatre

Jericho is about pro wrestling and big questions. Is this the best time to be alive? Does the universe have an arc? Is it naive to think that arc bends towards justice? If you’re a young journalist writing fluff pieces about pop-cultural phenomena while the world burns, would it be more ethical to quit and starve instead? And even if it’s ethical, is it effectual? Jericho is about bad things happening that a lot of people think are good things (and vice versa). It’s also about journalism and treating entertainment like it’s politics (and vice versa). #JERICHOplay

“Unique and relevant...As MALAPROP Theatre continues to develop its distinct approach to theatre-making, it is rather likely that their name will become rather significant in the coming years.”

“Jericho has a remarkably true understanding of itself, though; even when its subject is confusion, it never seems confused.”
