Synopsis from Writer/Director Adam Langer. www.adamlanger.com
"One of my most popular shows. It concerned the inner workings of a slacker magazine in Chicago, loosely based on my experiences as the managing editor of Chicago's Subnation, which emerged on the local scene at just about the moment when folks like Liz Phair, Smashing Pumpkins, Urge Overkill, and Veruca Salt were attracting national attention. I directed a low-budget feature film adapted from the play. It was produced by independent film auteur John Covert of Covert Creative Group and distributed by Troma Pictures' more family-friendly company 50th Street Films. Versions of this play appeared in a staged reading at Circle Rep in New York shortly before that theater company closed and also in full productions in Amherst, Massachusetts, San Francisco, and New York, but no cast came close to the energy and talent of the original Chicago ensemble, all of whom can be seen in the trailer below."
