#131 – Caleb Yong & Vince Deiulis of Theatre Nidana’s Life Assignment

A place for everyone and everyone in their place! In order to keep the economy moving, individuals are frequently assigned different jobs, names, religions, and relationships. When a Life Commissioning Agent unexpectedly shows up one evening to re-assign a loving married couple, the couple refuses to separate regardless of punishment. The situation spins further out of control when another newly assigned couple arrives the same evening to take possession of the house and begin their lives together. Secrets, passions, and ideologies collide against a bureaucratic authority. By the end, everyone must deal with either a comfortable yet inhuman status quo or the struggle of dreaming up an alternative world from scratch.
