A small community gathers around a staging of Shakespeare's Richard II. As they grapple with questions of authenticity and power, lines between performance and reality rapidly begin to blur, exposing a world that might be stranger and more inexplicable than its inhabitants could have imagined. Quilting together Shakespeare, American archives, and live music, Power/Trip puts an old story about authority and belief on display in a critical context, radically reworking it to examine faith, ecstasy and revolution in the contemporary U.S.
