A world premiere: A highly topical, incisive sequel to the cult political satire.

Mux has spent years in a vegetative state. Regaining consciousness, he realizes that an awful lot has changed. But one thing hasn’t: the world’s in kind of a sorry state. But that’s where he comes in. Aided by his long-term caregiver and a specially written manifesto, the self-proclaimed revolutionary embarks on an overdue mission to make the world a better place.
