Do you ever wonder if activism in America can provoke real change? Is it possible to stand up and shout and really make a difference?
Maybe it’s time to get a little crazy! This is where bad-boy Abbie Hoffman (played by Herbert Siguenza) comes in. You know about Abbie, right? He was the political and social activist who co-founded the Youth International Party (“Yippies”) on New Year’s eve of 1968. But did you know that this icon of youthful rebellion now serves as the patron saint of radicals? In his little corner of heaven, Abbie conducts a boot camp for activists who have the chutzpah required to go back to Earth to become new agents of change.
Enter Trish, a young veteran-turned-activist, who finds herself at the pearly gates. Bingo. Abbie senses he may have finally found the right combination of anger, courage, and cunning wit. So he calls in his comrades John Lennon and Albert Einstein, locks the gate and says “Let the training begin!”
Abbie is thrilled when Trish brings her A-Game to the table to take on the challenges of the 21st century. Yippie!
