      EVENT DETAILS
      Roy Scranton

      Roy Scranton, controversial and critically acclaimed, brings us a formally daring road trip into the heart of present-day America. Suzie’s seen it all, but now she’s looking for something she’s lost: a sense of the future. So when the chance comes to work with a maverick video artist on his road movie about Donald Trump’s America, she’s pretty sure it’s a bad idea but she signs up anyway, hoping for an outside shot at starting over. A provocative, genderqueer, shapeshifting musical romp through the brain-eating nightmare of contemporary America, I Heart Oklahoma! (Soho) moves from our bleeding-edge present to a furious Faulknerian retelling of the Starkweather killings in the 1950s, capturing in its fragmented, mesmerizing form the violence at the heart of the American dream.
