The Tower is a psychedelic journey into the history and mythology of the Donner Party, a group of snowbound pioneers who notoriously resorted to cannibalism to survive a brutal winter in the Sierra Nevada Mountains. Part loft party environmental theater experience and part guided tour though the tale of the Donner Party, The Tower employs historical fact and hallucinatory speculation in search of the terrible heart of the Donner legend. A vision of adolescent America: frostbitten, bloodstained, ravenous.
