February 3 @ 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM$15
On Friday, February 3, 2023, Gesa Power House Theatre will present Scout Durwood’s debut feature length visual album, YOUTOPIA.
Los Angeles, 2019. Times are rough, and they’re about to get worse. When Scout Durwood’s girlfriend dumps her unexpectedly, Scout takes stock in her life and determines that from now on, if something doesn’t feel one hundred percent authentic to her, she’s not doing it! After the breakup, Scout inadvertently forms a hipster cult. When members start to disappear, she is confronted with the knowledge that her journey of self-discovery may trigger the end of civilization as we know it, forcing her to face her most challenging enemy yet: herself.
