Liberal angst causes a displaced hipster to steal a baby from a tea party rally. A conservative in crisis floats down a river to be reborn. Charon, the ferryman of the Ohio River, rages against government regulation. Playwright-Actor Davey Strattan White performs this odd series of monologues.


The Foundling Wheel attacks the ever-growing animosity between the liberal and conservative concepts of America through the lens of extremely personal characters and their problems.

A liberal young hipster, frustrated by career displacement, goes to a tea party rally, and steals a baby. A conservative in crisis ditches his wife, and choir practice, and goes down the river on a canoe. Charon, the ferryman of the river Styx is forced to bear souls to the afterlife with or without his obulus payment. An odd story about financial redistribution, baby-snatching, and macro-cultural confusion.
