A small political theater company, Theater BAM!, finds itself at a crossroads: should they keep telling the stories they feel can change the world (and starve while telling them), or feed at the corporate trough, sell out, and be the mouthpiece for The Man? Tough decision. So when they are offered a commission from a “green” corporation that could save BAM!, the company is very tempted. All they have to do is create a new show: “2012 – The Musical!” But is it political? Will it keep with the company’s original mission? And who’s really bankrolling the production?
