“Can’t Pay? Don’t Pay!”
March 19-April 30/CULVER CITY – Written by Nobel Laureate Dario Fo and Franca Rame. Performed at 8 p.m. at The Actors’ Gang Theater in the old Ivy Substation. Hungry and fed up by rising prices and stagnant wages, Antonia joins a revolt of women at the local supermarket. Determined to live with dignity and rejecting an austerity diet of dog food and birdseed, the women’s protest escalates, and looting ensues. As police search door to door, Antonia and her friend Margherita frantically try to hide their ‘liberated’ goods from their husbands and the police. ‘Can’t Pay? Don’t Pay!’ questions why, in a world of bailed-out banks and overpriced prescription drugs, theft is only a crime when it is committed by those truly in need.
