Smith paints a colorful picture of the new generation in this production by creating a scene where journalist Rose Spencer becomes tangled in a love triangle after her literary circle involves themselves in a chaotic occupy-style movement.

The production team includes set designer Beowulf Boritt, co-set designer Alex Distler, lighting designer Mike Billings, sound designer Brandon Wolcott, associate sound director Eliot Davoren, prop manager Heather Urgina and production stage manager Jennifer Kahn.
