“Mt Rushmore has it all: badass women, time travel, punk rock, political activism, family dynamics, the ’80s, and live music. There’s injustice, deadly corporate malfeasance, a fear-mongering politician, and espionage. But also hope and strength and humor. It’s like you took The Americans, made it a DIY sci-fi with a strong social conscience, and set it to a Black Flag soundtrack. I’m in.”

Mt. Rushmore is a time travel, punk rock voyage that lands the audience in the throws of the rebellious Reagan era, where they help playwright and performer Monica Hunken on her quest to save her mother from a lifetime of grief and Conservatism. This wild quest is a true 1980s adventure – packed to the brim with espionage, unexpected friendships, and even a chance for redemption. Mt. Rushmore also features live original music with a band.
Mt Rushmore is sponsored, in part, by the Greater New York Arts Development Fund of the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, administered by Brooklyn Arts Council (BAC)
