The Resistance is fracturing.

One year after the populist Republic carried out the execution-style shooting of a journalist on the Cabaret’s main stage, Cabaret Rising tracks the Resistance after it retreats to the only safe haven left: the Dupont Underground. Sheltered in abandoned tunnels with grifters and ghosts, the movement is splintering under the weight of rumors of collusion, a rising radical faction and a brand-new threat–an outsider who can shut everything down with one wire transfer.
