The September Playset of the Month is Red Front!
If one sets a car on fire, that is a criminal offence. If one sets hundreds of cars on fire, that is political action. –Ulrike Meinhof
Romance, violence, and idealism collide as the world looks on. Since Munich in ‘72, the world has been transfixed by political violence. Some would call it terrorism, others might hail the brave fighters for freedom.
It’s the autumn of ‘77 in Germany and stories of kidnap, murder, and hijacking are front page news. A disparate group of avant-garde academics, youthful political activists, and workers at the end of their tether plot to make the world sit up and take notice.
This Baadar Meinhof Complex-inspired Playset is the result of a collaboration between Malcolm Craig and Per Fischer. It provides a very insular focus on the dubious workings and interactions of people desperate to make the world a better place.
