Root Vegetables

ROOT VEGETABLES is a new musical that follows an agricultural engineer named Hedy as she convinces her two friends, Psy and Caz, to move to a farm in the Catskills and start a queer farm utopia, near where her great-great Grandpa Leib lived. With Hedy’s skillset, she intends to develop new technologies on this farm that would help all communities automate growing vegetables in the face of climate change. But instead of being the utopia they all hoped for, each character slowly loses their stability, and the trio falls apart. ROOT VEGETABLES is an experiment, thinking through alternatives ways of living outside of capitalism, and underscoring the importance of community and mutual aid.
