ITâS MORNiNG AT WAL-MART. Workers scurry around preparing for the morning meeting and cheer [âA New Age Has Begunâ].
We meet Vicki Latrell, a hardworking single mom who hopes to rise up the company ranks and make a better life for her
daughter, Maia. Maia also works at Wal-Mart after school and weekends, but sheâs involved in a union organizing effort with
janitor Miguel Hernandez. Maia and Miguel are convinced that working at Wal-Mart is a dead end and argue that itâs time to
unite and demand better treatment [âAmerican Dreamâ].
Meanwhile, Wal-Mart executives are gathering for the morning meeting at headquarters [âMarch of the Executivesâ]. CEO
Scott âScooterâ Smiley is reeling from the bad press Wal-Mart is getting concerning the environment, workersâ rights,
and the worldâs largest sex-discrimination lawsuit. He launches a new public relations campaign to demonstrate that the
company values women.
At the motel where Vicki lives with Maia, Vicki reassures Maia that Wal-Mart will promote her and that their life will get
better [âBaby Girlâ].
Smiley and Dr. Normal, Wal-Martâs research director, meet to discuss a top-secret invention, a time portal, which they
believe will give Wal-Mart the edge they need to dominate the world [âThe Future is Oursâ].
At a meeting at Hooters with her manager, Tim Pearson, Vicki finds out that she has been passed over again in favor of an
inexperienced male colleague. Disillusioned and angry, Vicki storms back to work. Pearson has asked her and Maia to sing at
a corporate shareholdersâ meeting as part of Smileyâs new campaign [âA Womanâs Placeâ]. Vicki decides to go to Bentonville
to sing in hopes that she can tell her story to the board of directors.
At corporate headquarters, Dr. Normal, director of research, reveals his invention. He has used the portal to transport the
living head of Sam Walton, founder of Wal-Mart, into the present. Walton exhorts the board of directors to loosen up [âFlash
Them Bootstrapsâ]. Vicki and Maia are ushered in to meet the board for a photo op, and they anger Walton by complaining
about working conditions. Vicki and Maia have now seen too much. Dr. Normal suggests throwing them through the portal
into the future â the perfect solution [âHeave-Hoâ]. End Act i.
AS ACT II STARTS, Vicki and Maia find themselves 30 years in the future. Bentonville, Arkansas has become the capital of the
world, which is dominated by Wal-Mart [âWalmartopiaâ]. Vicki and Maia are seized and thrown into a holding cell. There they
meet Zeb, an actor who is in trouble for criticizing Wal-Mart-controlled art. They are both granted a reprieve when Counselor
James comes looking to replace performers in Wal-Arts. Vicki and Maia undergo a conversion [âOne-Stop Salvationâ].
Smiley, who has aged 30 years, still rules the Wal-Mart empire. He requests a meeting with Lawrence, the director of Wal-
Mart. Smiley wants a worldwide telecast that will convince the public that itâs acceptable to invade Vermont, the only part of
the world that has remained Wal-Mart free.
Vicki, Maia and Zeb are cast in the broadcast as terrorists from Vermont [âSocialist Paradiseâ]. A patriotic anthem sung by
Wal-Mart soldiers reduces the terrorists to jelly [âThese Bullets are Freedomâ]. Vicki and Maia confront the director about
the jingoism of the show, and he locks up Maia and threatens to send her to the front if anything goes awry.
Vicki and Zeb witness a âpublic readjustmentâ led by Sam Walton, where a Vermonter is injected with desire for Wal-Mart
products [âConsumeâ]. During Waltonâs speech it becomes clear that Vermont, Zebâs home, will be destroyed in Wal-Martâs
march to control the world. Zeb asks Vicki to help him subvert the performance. Vicki wrestles between her desire to speak
out and her desire to keep Maia safe [âWhat kind of Mother?â].
During the performance, the âterroristsâ enter and begin the show as planned. Then Zeb and Maia drop their weapons. The
rest of the cast is confused but tries to carry on. Maia reveals her secret weapon: She has captured Sam Waltonâs head
and demands a chance to speak. Vicki begs people to see what Wal-Mart has done to the world and asks them to look inside
themselves to see the power of creativity [âOutside the Big Boxâ]. One by one, the Wal-Mart leaders are taken down,
and our heroes step into a future free from Wal-Martâs domination.
