Katzelmacher, U.S.A. tells the story of a group of aimless and sexually frustrated young people in Missouri as they grapple with an outsider who has come to work at the local winery. Freely adapted from Rainer Werner Fassbinder’s classic, this new adaptation explores the middle-american identity in a changing world and the micro-aggressions that combust into tragedy. The cast features Chris Blem, Sam Disney, Alex Galan, Francis Hartley, Chelsea LeSage, Heather O’Sullivan, Madeline Adelle Phillips, Brendt Reil, Ellen White, and Ryan Wright.
