The Corporate Surrealists of America, under the direction of honors student Joel Sena (Fickel), present JUMAH COLA TIME TO DRINK, an original play by the director, on November 5 and 7 in Van Meter Auditorium at 8 PM. The piece is a shocking poetic drama that draws from the writings of Rudyard Kipling and cuts unflinchingly to the magmatic core of a nation’s expanding military, moral, and economic boot print in the world.

Jumah, an angry and abused Muslim-American soldier fighting in a fictional occupation of India, looks to a mysterious activist in an American military prison for solace and guidance. The woman, fighting peacefully for the return of her country’s stolen water resources from the hands of cola barons, prophesies every detail of Jumah’s imminent death. The Prometheus story reverses. Jumah’s final act on earth, a gift of water and love to the fellow soldier who will end up his murderer, proves to be the secret, quiet gesture of beauty, heroism, and sacrifice that is always at hand in a world brutal and ablaze. $4. Contains strong language and adult subject matter.
