These are burning times in fictitious Wertzberg, Ohio. Written by playwright and NIU faculty member Luke Krueger, Burning Times is about the people of the Wertzberg school system and their single-minded crusade against androgynous rapper Jonas Satan (Shah-tan), while the school’s new superintendent, the former U.S. Secretary of Education, struggles to reform the failing school system. Although the plot seems serious, consider that the lead crusader’s name is Snoozy Slaughter.
