DMACC students performed "Failure Analysis" at the Des Moines Civic Center's Stoner Theatre earlier this summer.
This philosophical comedy is about failure and the people who do it to perfection. A young woman, Isabel, works for a company called Failure Analysis, doing studies of airplane crashes, car accidents, etc. She eventually becomes sensitized to the potential failure in all things, including love relationships and humanity.
