Decline and Fall
Performed at Jersey City Theatre Center
Directed and Conceived by Drew Weinstein
Created by Drew Weinstein, Anna Grigo, Joe Pietropaolo, and Melannie Vasquez Lara
Based loosely on the Paris Peace Conference of 1919, Decline and Fall is an original work created by Nocturne Productions which analyzes the experience of individuals who make decision on behalf of many, the masses affected by such decisions, and the muddy filter of communication which separates them.
As a group of representatives, each beholden to their own promises, passions, and opinions, attempt to build a better world together, clashes of human behavior, ideals, and identities inevitably occur. When something so important becomes so primal, few individuals win while many are forgotten. Decline and Fall deconstructs the historical events that birthed our modern geo-political system to examine the fundamental human flaws that still plague our world today.
