MAY 2018: The Players’ latest project is the 13 minute stop-motion animation, LIBERTY and JUSTICE: A Cautionary Tale in the Land of the Free. What happens when a pair of lost citizens wander in the deep dark woods in search of a new leader? In this satirical take-off of the traditional folk tale, “Hansel and Gretel”, the wordless story follows protagonists Liberty and Justice as they negotiate the challenges of today’s unique political landscape, while being shadowed by a persistent Twitter bird.
