VOX POP!

a post-democratic musical

In the distant future, a group of rebel troubadours is surrounded on all sides by the deadly forces of an oppressive regime. In their last few moments of freedom they have only one chance left to pass along the tale of Vox Populi, a sacred secret that tells of the rise and fall of a great mythical society. Can they pass along the legend to their children before they're captured and save future democracies from corruption, or is there no such thing as democracy without corruption?
