Synopsis

"Hacked..." is a new caravan experimental musical created right off the headlines and news of the international media conglomerates. It's an operatic theatre fantasy featuring a Band of Virtual Pirate Hackers who have “revoked” the “Treasure of the Empire." The show opens with the pirates running into the audience space, chased by the Security Surveillance Police (SSP). They see this Mammon Corp Vault in front of them…trapped between the Mammon Vault & the SSP. They decide to climb the front face of the Vault, hoping to escape on the other side. Near the top of the Vault, they are suddenly confronted by a grasping, gurgling gargoyle. The Hackers are sucked into the mouth of this ghastly gargoyle. This huge creature is the Infamous, All-powerful Monster Mammon, a multiple toothed, multiple eyed, multiple tentacled, singularly orificed Monster with three humanness’ singing heads, “Raptura & Verita & Tradgia."
