Tell us about your show.
In The Other Side of the Flood, a computer wakes up in the year 2035, on the eve of the world socialist revolution. Fighting has broken out all over the globe. For the first time, the U.S. military has used tactical nuclear weapons against its own population – to destroy the Los Angeles Commune. Suddenly, all communication stops. A new player arrives on the scene, a singularity, a computer exploding into consciousness and fighting for sanity through a barrage of conflicting images and downloaded personalities.
The play follows the intertwined stories of Hamida, a leader in the South Asian Socialist Alliance, her daughter Sulthana – and Amparo, a leader in the Los Angeles Commune and her son Jesse, a veteran of the South Asian War.
Describe your show in three words.

Why should someone come see your show?
Because the lyrics and music are beautiful. Because it’s full of heart. Because it’s a good story.
If your show was a superhero which superhero would it be, and why?
If you could see only one show at the Vancouver Fringe Festival this year, besides your own, what show would that be?
