One Acts
The Handicapper General

Based on "Harrison Bergeron" by Kurt Vonnegut

In the year 2081 everybody is finally equal. And if their not, the Handicapper General equips them with devices to make sure they are. George Bergeron has to wear a heavy bag around hs neck because he is too strong and a mental disrupter ear phone that blasts loud noises into his ear every time he thinks too long. His wife, the love of his life, is so average that he cannot help but love her. However, their son had to be taken away from them because he was too handsome, too tall, too athletic, too everything. But soon they see their son on the Holovision where he breaks free from his bonds and strikes a blow for independence. Then the Handicapper General catches him and uses the ultimate equaling device.
