A Modest Proposal is a world premiere satire inspired by the Jonathan Swift essay of the same name. In 1729 Ireland, the O’Really family has fallen upon hard times. They must take out loan after loan in order to make ends meet as their family continues to grow. Unable to pay off the loans, all seems bleak until word spreads of an enlightening new essay by Jonathan Swift that humbly suggests that when parents can no longer be the bread winners, the children can literally become the bread. Join Box Wine Theatre for a dark and hilarious romp to see what can happen when people just don’t understand satire.
