In almost-apocalyptic Los Angeles, an orphaned heiress invites two strangers into her penthouse apartment for an eccentric feast. What starts off as an odd evening, devolves into chaos as the splintering minds of these three women begin to show their cracks. Brainpeople, by award–winning playwright José Rivera, is a lyrical rumination on the ways in which humans seek connection when war is your everyday backdrop, hunger is your constant pang and trauma is your collective psyche.
