Written in 2008 and premiering at the Ars Nova Theater in New York, Peter Sinn Nachtrieb’s comedy BOOM quickly became the most produced play in the US between 2009 – 2010 and until now, has never before been professionally staged in the UK.
Jules, a marine biologist, places a personals ad offering “sex to change the course of the world”. Jo replies and comes to Jules’ lab expecting a hot night of no strings sex. But this is no casual encounter, it has evolutionary significance and the future of the human race hangs in the balance!
What will be their fate?
What is ours?
What’s with the fish tank? And who’s the woman in the corner?
Described as “a grandly whacked-out apocalypse fantasy” by The Washington Post, BOOM is a comedy about sex, the end of the world and tropical fish and Announcement Productions and Theatre 503 are proud to finally bring the play to UK audiences for the first time this August.
