Caged

AN ALLEGORICAL PLAY BY DEBORAH BERENSON

- in development -

A woman wakes up in a cell with no idea how she got there.  Sizing up her captor in the hopes of appealing to his humanity, she's determined to make sense of her circumstances and break free.

Upon encountering other prisoners, however, she learns more about his disturbing motives. It seems he has a pattern with his victims: breaking them in unimaginable ways and taking more from them than they'd believed possible.  In order to survive, she plans her escape.  She won't end up like the others.  She can't.

Caged explores themes of human hypocrisy and the atrocities we're willing to endorse for the sake of privilege, comfort and convenience.
