The New Colony is pleased to present a virtual reading of its sci-fi adventure Other Rockpools by Co-Artistic Director Fin Coe*, directed by Elyse Dolan. Other Rockpools was scheduled to have its world premiere at The New Colony in July 2020, but was postponed due to the pandemic. The reading is free with a suggested donation to Chicago Votes, an initiative to help spread awareness around voter rights and resources. The virtual reading will be available to watch on YouTube at youtube.com/user/newcolonychicago with no reservation required.
In the summer of 2001, a renowned physicist invites three strangers to her family’s cabin. Horrified by the results of the recent Presidential election, the team of scientists set to work building an experimental machine with a wild and irresistible purpose: to get them the hell out of their awful timeline. Political differences, personality conflicts and a disruptive drug-dealing pizza driver ratchet up the tension; as the machine grows closer to completion, the team must reckon with what they will do when it’s finally time to turn it on.
