- Description: Drama. Poetry. Winner of the 2013 Leslie Scalapino Award for Innovative Women Performance Writers. In this farce set on a hijacked containership on its way to Magnetic Island, Julian Assange attempts to "reboot" a troupe of DEAD YOUTH—teenagers from all over the globe who have died in violent circumstances from sweatshop labor to environmental poisoning to war—but must grapple with two other would-be hijackers: a young Somali pirate and a female Antoine de St-Exupery. Described by its author as a "badly- wired allegory," DEAD YOUTH, OR, THE LEAKS brings to manic light the veiled violence that makes life in capitalism possible.
