SONNETS FOR AN OLD CENTURY | by José Rivera | Directed by Bill Buddendorf

Today’s America is in purgatory. Barely into the 21st century, the country is divided, and for some, the world is ending, and others, it’s only beginning. José Rivera’s Sonnets for an Old Century brings together Americans from every part of this spectrum in a moment of great crisis, all with one last chance to leave a piece of themselves behind to build a better world in this new century. While they work to find the most important parts of their lives, they are forced to see their stories unfold and find what unites them all.
