Make Em' Cry "Uncle!"

By Dizzi De Luca

Uncle Sam blew up the Earth, seemingly leaving him to be the last man standing. Enter Lady Liberty and their child to throw Sam's life into new territory. A roller disco, custody battle, and more push Sam to search for redemption in a world he destroyed.


Make Em' Cry, "Uncle!" asks if America and mankind can be redeemed through the lens of a post-apocalyptic, Americana comedic play with music.
