Synopsis: Roy Scranton, controversial and critically-acclaimed, brings us a formally daring road trip into the heart of present-day America.

When Suzie is offered the chance to work with a maverick cinematographer on his road-trip movie about Donald Trump’s America, she’s pretty sure it’s a bad idea. But she signs up anyway, hoping it might help her start over and find something she’s lost: a sense of the future.

A provocative, genderqueer, shapeshifting musical romp through the brain-eating nightmare of contemporary America, I ❤ Oklahoma! moves from our bleeding-edge present to a furious Faulknerian retelling of the Charlie Starkweather killings in the 1950s, capturing in its fragmented, mesmerizing form the violence at the heart of the American dream.
