“Sex to Change the Course of the World”—A grad student’s online personal ad lures a journalism student to his subterranean research lab under the pretense of an evening of “no strings attached” sex. But when a major catastrophic event strikes the planet, their date takes on evolutionary significance and the fate of humanity hangs in the balance. 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 and explores the influences of fate versus randomness in the course of one’s life, and life as we know it.

OR,

by Liz Duffy Adams

Saturdays at 8pm, Sundays at 7pm

OR, takes place during one night in the life of Aphra Behn: poet, spy, and soon to be the first professional female playwright. Sprung from debtors’ prison after a disastrous overseas mission, Aphra is desperate to get out of the spy trade. She has a shot at a production if she can only finish her play by morning despite interruptions from sudden new love, actress Nell Gwynne; complicated royal love, King Charles II; and very dodgy ex-love, double-agent William Scott—who may be in on a plot to murder the king. Can Aphra resist Nell’s charms, save Charles’ life, win William a pardon, and launch her career, all in one night?
Both "boom" and "OR," are presented through special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service.
