4 $TAGES by Anthony J. Piccione


4 $tages is an avant-garde drama in one-act striking at the core of some of the biggest issues facing American society in the 21st century. This multi-layered tome of greed, corruption, and revolution explores the fundamental issues plaguing the American political and economic systems – from wealth inequality and corporate greed to runaway imperialism – through a movement-based, abstract journey through America’s 40-year economic decline.
