Renegade Theatre Experiment presents BOOM by Peter Sinn Nachtrieb
BOOM
Written by Peter Sinn Nachtrieb
Directed by Kathleen Normington

"As is often the case in a comedy, especially an apocalyptic one, things go very badly for all concerned, but for the audience it could hardly go better. As catastrophic extinction events go, this BOOM is a blast." Sam Hurwitt, Marin Independent Journal

"Peter Sinn Nachtrieb's very funny BOOM may well be the world's first apocalyptic sex farce. It's certainly the most scientifically savvy. With nary a trace of didacticismNachtrieb weaves the essentials of evolution into the story of a casual-sex date turned star-crossed attempt to repopulate the world." Robert Hurwitt, San Francisco Chronicle

"Mr. Nachtrieb has a gift for darkly funny dialogue and an appealing way of approaching big themes sideways. BOOM winds up speaking, quietly and piquantly, to our enduring fascination with and need for myths about the beginning of life as well as its end. I am passionate about my stories," [Barbara] says angrily. "Passionate." That Mr Nachtrieb is, too, is what gives BOOM its buoyancy." Ben Brantley, New York Times

"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 that 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 we know it on the planet.
