FNT presents... Forgottonia, a new musical
A farcical drama about falling in love, coming of age, and seceding from the United States. It follows two siblings through two interwoven, parallel stories set in Colchester, Illinois, a town that was the at the center of a real-life secessionist movement in the late-60’s when the government reneged on a promise to build a highway-- leaving Colchester an island in the corn and its people just as forgotten. Forgottonia grapples with the fact that sometimes when we fight for our home, we lose. Then what? How do we cope? And how do we come back once we leave? Come find yourself in Forgottonia, opening January 8 at the .ZACK.
