"U.S. Drag"

U.S. Drag
Gina Gionfriddo

Josiah Frampton, Liz Frederick, Olivia Haas & Jeremy Ryan
Planes did not fall out of the air nor all ATM screens go completely blank as was predicted, but according to Gina Gionfriddo’s 2002 master’s-thesis-born play, U.S. Drag, something did happen to all those twenty-somethings we now call Millennials as we all crossed to the other side of 2000.  Dragon Productions Theatre Company follows up its 2013 staging of Gina Gionfriddo’s After Ashby (a strange, dark comedy about American obsession with grizzly crimes and the stars they sometime produce) with this production of a play that raises questions of just what kind of lives young adults can hope to have in today’s reality-TV-like world they star in.
