THE WAVE by Ron Jones

April 7
through April 8

The social experiment that went awry!

This live theatrical production stars Jon Kovach (Hand to God, Of Mice and Men at Bay Street) and is based on a true story. THE WAVE, by Ron Jones, is a narrative about a young 1960’s California history teacher who wanted to deter his students from the allure of totalitarianism. His daring social experiment succeeded beyond his wildest expectations, creating a fascist state on campus. Replete with salutes and Gestapo-like informants, 30 students grew to 200 as this exercise in fascism spiraled out of control. The “experiment” illustrates how individual freedoms can be quickly abandoned and willfully repressed for collective goals and racism as happened in the rise of Nazi Germany and the treatment of the Jews during World War II.
