ANOTHER PLACE

What if you could build your own universe and leave your troubles behind - would you do it?

Or can we embrace our place in history as living in the age of climate change?

Inspired by new discoveries in physics, Another Place orbits around Cassandra, a physicist who sees the opportunity to literally create a new universe. Can she start over, unencumbered by her own failings? In her attempt to create a black hole, multiple times and places collide, opening up new possibilities and complications. Unpredictable, idiosyncratic and absurd,

the play tackles themes of environmental responsibility, scientific discovery and human failure.

"... a promising young company and the show had an interesting premise – a woman scientist discovers how to create new universes by collapsing black holes.” (Culturebot)

“The entire design budget (lights, set, costumes)
was $500, almost entirely using repurposed and recycled goods.”
(Hamilton Dramaturgy’s TheaterNow)
