A Strange Imagining by
Georgina Escobar

Directed by Abigail Vega

Sweepers, Luna and Siri are the hitwomen of the multiverse armed with deadly broomsticks bound to sweep mistakes into oblivion. But when they fail to clean up Adam and Eve’s apple situation they find themselves on a cosmic journey through time. With DRAGON CON sensibilities this play is rife with the humor and adventure of a great graphic novel.

About the Playwright
Georgina Escobar is the maker of hyper-sensical, ridiculous, and sometimes impossible narratives that run current systems of thinking through different filters of human logic.  She likes to illustrate, write, paint and compose music and do anything that empowers women and youth. She does this weird thing with speculative evolution comedies, takes a stab at sci-fi feminism, and is obsessed with creating huge, hyper-realistic, modern playgrounds for the stage.
