"A grandly whacked-out apocalypse fantasy" -Washington Post

At an evolutionary museum far in the future, a curator tells the epic and intimate story of two present-day people on an awkward first date...which gets interrupted by a comet hitting the Earth with globally catastrophic repercussions! Our mismatched duo are forced to face the odds (and their fears and prejudices) together as the dust settles and questions about the future of the world bloom.

"boom" riotously looks at the depths of humanity - what we want from one another, how we take care of each other, and how our stories become important.

"From pants-around-the-ankles comedy to hipster Twilight Zone takeoff..."boom" is imaginative and easy to like" - The New Yorker

"...boom winds up speaking quietly and piquantly to our enduring fascination with and need for myths about the beginning of life as well as its end." -The New York Times

"Both the funniest play seen hereabouts this season and one of the most thoughtful" - The Cleveland Plain Dealer

Suggested for audiences 14+. Viewer discretion is advised.
