Demagogue - The statue of a lordly man sitting on a chair with a severed head on a red background

Demagogue

Safari Street Creative's fast-paced & unflinching social satire returns for a strictly limited season.

In 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 role as parents, and in a world stripped of value, what revolt can really signify?
