with Lowbrow Opera
Follow the journey of four roommates, recently brought together via craigslist, through their first forays into adulthood. Ruth, Tony, Bucket, and Drew come across many challenges – mainly their own lack of practical life skills. #adulting is equal parts self-deprecating humor and a giant middle finger to anyone who says millennials can’t get shit done. Mostly absurd and just a little raunchy, the opera portrays vignettes of modern lives, from the joy of a first apartment to the horror of an icky stain you find on the only couch you could afford.

Physically and mentally under the omnipresent eye of Big Brother, Winston has been caught struggling for scraps of love and freedom in a world awash with distrust and violence. With the brutal "assistance" of four Party Members who reenact scenes from his diary, Winston is forced to confess his Thoughtcrimes before an unseen inquisitor.
