production information

In the 7th-best ski resort in southwest central Colorado, the homes and haunts of affluent vacationers have become the playgrounds of the local townies and seasonal itinerant workers. Class, competition and cold weather collide as the lifestyles of the rich intersect with the lifestyles of the aimless in the bubbling waters of a hot tub.

Shown in development, this latest show from Brooklyn-based company The Debate Society takes you to an Alpine getaway inspired by early '90s ski culture, Clinton-era economics and historical feuds.

"An unlikely triumvirate, crafting skillful and gently absurd meditations on art, life, and bingo."
