SMCC Theatre Presents: Social Media Killed the Democracy Star

Social Media Killed the Democracy Star

Social Media Killed the Democracy Star 
Devised, Designed & Directed  by 
SUZEE (Mario El Caponi Mendoza) 

Social Media Killed the Democracy Star is a devised, multimedia theatre performance highlighting the ramifications of social media. All across the United States different stories and characters collide with one another over hot topics ranging from inflation, abortion, cancel culture, news ratings, lonely influencers, drug addiction, domestic abuse, and OnlyFans fame, all at the expense of overlooking the collapse of democracy. This dark satirical dramedy takes the audience on a harrowing ride to discover the value of having a choice.
