Incredible Things, Awful Things

A second date goes eerily well in this mysterious new drama
about online matchmaking and the aftermath of WikiLeaks.

Written by Stan Richardson, directed by Cedric Lamar, co-produced by Meg Stemmler, with: Cedric Lamar, Stan Richardson, Matt Steiner & Virginia Wilcox

Incredible Things, Awful Things was the second apartment play by The Representatives, hosted by Meg Stemmler in Williamsburg, Brooklyn in June 2012, and was inspired by the lack of knowledge the general public had about Chelsea Manning (then Bradley Manning), the transgender activist, US Army private, and whistleblower convicted under the Espionage Act of leaking sensitive information to Julian Assange of Wikileaks.

““If you had free reign over classified networks… and you saw incredible things, awful things… things that belonged in the public domain, and not on some server stored in a dark room in Washington DC… what would you do?”
