WRITING ON THE WALL
Sunday, 8/13, 6:30 p.m. @ CoHo Productions
The year is 2017. After an outside wall of their high school is defaced with racist taunts and white supremacist slogans, six Wisconsin teenagers grapple with what it means to be an American in the age of Donald Trump. A scary, subversive comedy-drama with (maybe) a happy ending.
