Too Late for Opportunity?

“Too Late for Opportunity?”

Butte’s Venus Rising Café, 3 – 5 p.m. Monday, 10 December 2007 Admission free.

A short, two-act play about the Arco-British Petroleum toxic waste repository near the town of Opportunity, Montana.

Modeled on Augusto Boal’s “Theatre of the Oppressed,” each act will be performed several times. After two repetitions of the second act, audience members will be invited to participate by taking the place of an actor and redefining that actor’s role. Performances of the second act may be continued so long as audience members are willing to participate.

The play will be introduced with a brief historical overview by Matt Vincent of the Clark Fork Watershed Education Program.

The play is a production by a team of students from Pat Munday’s “Politics of Technical Decisions” class at Montana Tech. Students will play the Anaconda Company, ARCO-BP, the Environmental Protection Agency, Milltown, and Opportunity.

For additional information, please contact Pat Munday at pmunday@mtech.edu or 496.4461.
