 The play takes place in a pandemic-torn world, where the state of the Duke’s Court is in chaos, paranoia and rife with power mongering. No one in the court is flourishing, even the powerful Duke, whose power was stolen and remains dependent upon the exiled ex-Duke's perpetual distance. In the midst of all this chaos, the young people retreat to a new communication system, the Arden App, where they can flee the complication of the world order and seek the right order. Join us for RVACT's first ever online theatrical production! Featuring a team of theatre professionals from across the nation, from New York to California. This production rejoices in the capabilities of online theatre, leading the world into a new era of live entertainment. This is a show you do not want to miss!
