Neurologist and playwright James Jordan brings us a comedy about corporate personhood, undead CEOs, and erectile dysfunction medicine – while real-time EEG readings and eye movements of volunteer audience members study how their brains react to live vs. mediated performance. Results hopefully to be published at a later date after peer review.

 

THE PLAY: Long ago, the secret to immortality was discovered. If corporations are people, then people are corporations! All one needs to live forever is to incorporate oneself in perpetuity. Mr. Corporation -- a.k.a. “Mott Waite”, the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court who ushered in Jim Crow laws and set the precedent for Corporate Personhood in the 1880’s -- did exactly that. Today, Mott is the world’s most powerful CEO, leading the multinational pharmaceutical company, Pfizerck. Mr. Corporation, LLC, has literally been incorporated with Washington’s Secretary of State (UBI #603432643). … WHACKJOB transforms experimental theater into actual cognitive experiments. Mott unleashes a new blockbuster drug, Boner-T, pulling out every unethical stop to assure success. Eventually, the audience realizes that they are Pfizerck’s human clinical trial. Meanwhile, a hungry young anarchist does his own research into stopping Pfizerck, coming face-to-face with Mott for the “Final Boss” conclusion. … Is there any way to stop a corporation?

WHO: The Boondogglers are “agit-info” performers from the Seattle area. Freaking out audiences since their Seattle Fringe Festival days in the ‘90s, they return from hiatus to keep confusing, educating, and utterly entertaining audiences. James Jordan wrote five plays with The Boondogglers, including

eMpTy V, a Seattle New City Playwrights Festival Finalist, and CJD: USA, spotlighted by The New York Times during UTC’s NeuroFEST. Director Dan Gildark traveled to war zones (former Yugoslavia), and on returning to the United States, put himself through film school in Portland, OR. His feature film

CTHULHU, garnered theatrical distribution and is now considered a minor cult classic.
