In this episode, Kathlynn and Jose start by looking back at the attack on the Capitol by white supremacists. Furthermore, the way in which theatrical elements can be put at the service of terrorists. After that, they review two shows. First, they discuss Shotgun Players’ production of Loy A. Webb’s The Light. They follow this with a review of 1993, an audio drama by Finkle produced by the Keen Company.

Jose interviews Heather Christian and Joshua William Gelb. They are the composer and director/performer, respectively, behind Send Me the Sacred Face. The show explores the life of Mother Teresa of Calcutta, Gelb plays her, in drag. Christian speaks about the way in which digital theater lacks ritual. Gelb gives insight into directing and performing from inside his closet.
