UNDER CONSTRUCTION

by Charles L. Mee

Under Construction is inspired by the Norman Rockwell covers on the Saturday Evening Post in the 1950s and the installation artwork of Jason Rhoades in the early 21st Century. The play is a collage of scenes, from both then and now, that compares Frank Sinatra's crooning, Ann Bannon's pulp fiction, and Allen Ginsberg's beat poetry to contemporary hard rock music, alternate images of sexuality, and other icons of popular culture. Rather than follow a standard plot with specific characters, Under Construction weaves together multiple figures and stories to build a landscape of an "essential" America, its open society, and the many possibilities it affords to anyone at anytime.
