Just Mud
Caleb Richardson
Harold Herman Lab Theatre
5PM & 6PM

Just Mud is a one-act play that seeks to uncover a deeper universal truth surrounding the causes and consequences of modern warfare. Death and destruction have ravaged the country ever since the bombs replaced the birds. All that’s left of the land now are the ruins of memory buried within the soil. Lost in the carnage of an ocean of violence, two soldiers sift through the mud as they search for a purpose beyond human conflict. Trapped beneath the earth and left only with each other, the orders from above are to kill, but it’s been a long war.
