DramaTech presents boom by Peter Nachtrieb - Virtual
“Sex to Change the Course of the World” - a grad student’s online personal ad lures a mysterious journalism student to his subterranean research lab under the pretense of an evening of “no strings attached” sex. But when a major global catastrophic event strikes the planet, their date takes on evolutionary significance and the fate of humanity hangs in the balance. Will they survive? What about the fish in the tank? And who is the woman pulling levers and playing the timpani? An epic and intimate comedy that spans over billions of years, boom explores the influences of fate versus randomness in the course of one’s life, and life as well know it on the planet.
Because of the COVID pandemic, the show will take place online. Our goal is to create a live performance that takes into account the safety of the actors, but provides a fully realized production using online tools available. For more information, visit www.dramatech.org.
