Vassar College and New York Stage and Film Present Powerhouse Theater

…and the horse you rode in on

June 20-22, 2019

In the Martel Theater, Vogelstein Center for Drama and Film

by Zach Helm
Directed by Kate Whoriskey

...and the horse you rode in on tells the story of Ben, a young hacktivist. Federally incarcerated for digital civil-disobedience, Ben attempts to bring the entire US Judiciary to its knees from inside prison as a warning on totalitarianism... all while his mother, in scant visits, attempts to negotiate for his freedom and mental health. It is the first of a proposed five play cycle drawn as an analog of real events of the past decade that expose the state of international espionage and the human lives it has torn apart.
