Medium Theatre Company founder Morgan FitzPatrick Andrews was invited to Vermont to preside over the entertainment portion of Goddard College's Alternative Media Conference.  As an alumnus of the college, he also performed excerpts of two of the Mediums' plays: 1. "The Moon and our Future" from The Sea of Tranquility, and 2. "The Medium Manifesto",  a scene from Meet the Mediums performed and adapted using the scant selection of objects found under the stage leftover from Goddard's long defunct on-campus theatre program.  The conference commemorated Goddard's 150th anniversary and paid tribute to the first Alt Media gathering 43 years earlier for which a plane was hijacked by UC Berkley hippies and people copulated on the floor during an underground comics panel.  This rendition of "The Medium Manifesto" was pretty much the 2013 equivalent of those post-summer-of-love antics from 1970, only clad in combustable green jumpsuits.
