Synopsis

A new play from the author of The Vagina Monologues, O.P.C. is an exploration of consumption and politics that asks, “How are we to survive as a species if we insist on destroying the world we love?” A dumpster-diving freegan (Olivia Thirlby, Juno) is doing just fine squatting in an abandoned apartment, but when her mother (Melissa Leo, The Fighter), a candidate running for the Senate, tries to make her toe the party line, radicalism comes into collision with mainstream liberalism. Mother and daughter wrestle with the inconvenient truths at the heart of consumer culture, tossed between political compromise and "obsessive political correctness."
