Four men conspire to defeat a despised opponent by firing a missile into a crowded conference room on the day of an important meeting. As the scheme spins wildly into complication, the plotters descend into suspicion, bloodlust, and raucous infighting. In addressing some serious contemporary issues, Wells tells a story of corporate greed, power, surveillance and the secrecy that increasingly pervades our daily lives. This is a play confirming everything you’ve ever wanted to believe about what goes on behind the frosted windows and code-locked doors of America’s executive suites and carefully exposes the barbarism encoded in corporate bureaucracy. With a grand sense of humor about misinterpreted metaphors and think-tank buzz language, Tortuga gives us absurd savages in suits, drinking good bourbon and plotting destruction.
