Brideshead Obliterated Elise LeBreton
About This Show
A young artist becomes romantically entangled with a family of disgraced English aristocrats, and his life is never the same. Part literary deconstruction, part orgiastic karaoke party, this reimagining of the 1945 novel Brideshead Revisited interrogates assimilation, desire, and the longing to go home.
