Theatre Presents Post-Apocalyptic Drama


The latest theatre production, “After the Blast,” will stream online at 7:30 p.m. April 14-17.

In the play, humans retreated deep underground generations ago after environmental disasters and nuclear war. Nature is now simulated through brain-implanted chips, and fertility is regulated to keep the surviving population in balance. Anna and Oliver want to have a baby, and their options are running out.
