Siguenza reinvents this classic with satirical genius worthy of Moliere. Don Aragon is a Spanish landowner in Alta California on the eve of the U.S. annexation. He rules over his family with the will of a conquistador, but sadly, Don Aragon suffers great anxiety over the immanent U.S. invasion. When his unscrupulous doctor dubs the illness ‘Manifest Destinitis’, Don Aragon’s paranoid antics upset his grip on a rebellious household. With an outrageous satirical mixture of medicine and history, Siguenza’s prescription of laughter and lessons might do wonders for what ails us.
A wildly creative, absurd and surprising reinvention of Ibsen’s Hedda Gabler. Jane Gordon, a pregnant housewife, is abducted by robots, taken to the rainforest, and forced to perform Hedda Gabler by her robot captors. Meanwhile Nugget, her ten-year-old daughter, with the aid of her milquetoast father, an eager documentary filmmaker and her small arms dealing uncle must rescue Jane - whether she wants to be saved or not. As we approach the AI singularity, Heddatron constructs a bizarre and strangely familiar world of reality TV and rocket launchers where everyone, artificial or otherwise, just wants to feel a little bit human.
