This Was the World
“I’m no longer sure what’s allowed.”
John, a 60-something white professor of Constitutional Law and Indigenous Rights is unhappy with a new faculty hire. He seeks to draw a student into his conflict with the Dean’s office, which leads to a complaint, which leads to a reprimand, which leads to a breakdown of the man, his daughter, and their understanding of the world.
A play about old power and new ideas, academia and decolonization, language and authority.
