A riot breaks out at the local supermarket. Antonia and Margherita try desperately to hide their 'liberated' goods before their husbands and the police catch up with them. When will this end?
Written in 1974 in Italian by Dario Fo, this English version of They Don't Pay? We Won't Pay! was translated by Jon Laskin and Michael Aquilante, and directed by SCA alumni Derek Chan and Pedro Chamale, working with SCA theatre students. The play is a political farce about consumer backlash against high prices: People resorting to eating pet food and rabbit heads; young couples on the verge of being evicted; inflation running amok. Sounds familiar?
