"An android/human diplomat tries to negotiate the release of Venusian/American Prisoners captured on a privatized human colony on Mars, run by Findot Corporation. Caught between the prisoners' allegiances to Democratic Mars Colony America, a Venusian ambassador's Catholic zeal and apathy in equal measures, and an impervious corporate colony general, our hero pursues a course of altruism towards ambiguous ends.
Adapted from the controversial one-act play penned by Ching Chong Latino Boys (CCLB) founders Yukio Ban and Miguel Hernandez and originally staged in 1978 in San Francisco. Epepep & Manila Institute will present a one-night screening, performance, and installation of The Turtle."
