99 - A Rock Opera
Copyright 2015-16 Mark Baughman
Pete, a bureaucrat from the Cleveland Department of the Environment, is tasked with managing a group of protestors (the “99-ers”) who have taken over a downtown park. The leader of the 99-ers turns out to be Sarah, his college flame, and while he is thrilled to see Sarah again she crushes him with a rebuke that he is a sell-out. Pete’s reaction to the 99-ers featured speaker, “The Gardner” makes Pete wonder if Sarah’s right. Meanwhile Henry, who was living in the park, is now made homeless by the very protesters who purport to defend him from the bureaucracy. Opposition Leader, media savvy Captain America, sees an opportunity in Henry’s plight and a square off ensues.
