SynopsisIn the not-so-distant future, America is at the mercy of unchecked martial law after a massive government breakdown. Wells’ new dark comedy centers on Carlton Berg, a government employee imprisoned in a small-town Missouri jailhouse who claims to possess a giant database containing the names of every American citizen slated for persecution by the new regime. His only hope comes in the form of fellow inmate Tanya, an abrasive drunk driver, and Shonda, the jail’s law-abiding administrative assistant. The North Plan is part of the 6th Annual First Look Repertory of New Work, which also includes The Old Masters and The Etiquette of Vigilance. Take a backstage journey through the play development process with First Look 101.
