After The Blast
Broken Nose Theatre, one of Chicago’s premier Pay-What-You-Can theatre companies, is pleased to continue its tenth season with the Chicago premiere of Zoe Kazan’s smart and incisive sci-fi drama “After The Blast,” directed by ensemble member JD Caudill.
Generations after a global disaster has driven humankind into underground cities, partners Anna and Oliver are hoping to have a child – even though Anna’s struggles with depression may prevent them from gaining the government approval needed to become parents. But when Oliver brings home a small robot – a new companion they name “Arthur” – their lives are changed forever. Zoe Kazan’s smart and incisive play asks, “When the future seems bleak, how do we form bonds and build lives in the face of uncertainty?”
