Venue: Live Five Theatre at The Refinery

February 27 - March 9, 2025

The Unplugging by Yvette Nolan

When all the world’s technology ceases to function, it is time to find a new way of living—or an old way. Two women—exiled for being too old to bear children, trudge across the desolate winter prairie, clinging to traditional wisdom for survival. A charismatic stranger appears, seeking their aid, but will they share their knowledge of the past and provide hope for the future to the community that branded them “useless”?
