Ella Davidson, a young black socialist, embodies Ben Shapiro, right wing political pundit in a performance piece in which she envisions a world without him. When that isn't enough for her to feel like she's made a difference in some way, she concocts a plan to meet Ben in person and confront him. She meets and debates Ben, hoping to change him for the better through the power of human connection but he remains unmoved. Can Ella help save America and can she even help save herself?

*The Ben Shapiro Project will be presented on a split bill with Sarah K. Finn.
