POLICE IN THE WILDERNESS by Cameron Stuart
POLICE IN THE WILDERNESS by Cameron Stuart

Presented as part of the Exponential Festival (https://www.theexponentialfestival.org/)

Police in the Wilderness is a poetic narrative set in a future where burying or honoring the dead is illegal. Enforcers of these laws are agents of The Order, a cult that opposes symbols, language, and thinking. When an unmarked grave is discovered in the wilderness, a confrontation occurs between the local police and an old hermit. After a priest of The Order gets involved, a profane ritual unfolds with unforeseen consequences.

For the regular price of one ticket to the performance, audience members will receive a book with a copy of the play, a short essay, and a second version of the story. This new telling is in the form of an upcoming radio play: Police in the Wilderness 2, and includes all-new language throughout. Both stories form an extended meditation on the eschatological drive of human culture; linguistic and biological encounters with overlapping ecologies of wilderness; and the role of poetry in the convergence of these two paradigms.
