“Sheeple” is a new play by Mara Wilson about the teenage burden of having to know everything. It’s a summer day during Bush’s reign, and Nick is determined to save the world, score some pot, make Soo-Min his girlfriend, and have his LaVeyan Satanist brother talk his best friend Alberto out of enlisting. Sheeple is about what to do when “everything you know is wrong.”
