One of New York's most highly acclaimed theater companies, Elevator Repair Service (Gatz, The Sound and the Fury [April Seventh, 1928]) presents their latest work in progress - Arguendo. In Barnes v. Glen Theatre, a 1991 First Amendment case brought by a group of go-go dancers, the justices of the U.S. Supreme Court debate whether dancing naked in a strip club is an exercise of artistic expression or a crime. In Arguendo, ERS presents the case's oral argument, verbatim, revealing a compelling intellectual struggle and the court's often-absurd sense of humor.
