In a world stripped of value, what can revolt signify?

Inside a university Dean's office, a modern power couple are summoned to discuss their daughter's punishment for an act of petty vandalism on school property. But when that act is alluded to instead be a case of political activism, the pair are forced to question their beliefs, their marriage, their role as parents, and even the very nature of revolt.

A new play by Safari Street Creative, 'Demagogue' is a fast-paced and unflinching social satire addressing human hypocrisy and how nothing is older than the idea that this is new.
