    The Bomb

    Read the Offoffoff review

    An experiment in theatrical critical mass, director Josh Fox has gathered a 35-member ensemble from six countries to create an epic play that explores the wide range of opinions and emotional reactions in response to our current global crisis. The play hurtles through 56 years of world events, from the creation of the atomic bomb to the present-day New York City. "The Bomb" focuses on many stories simultaneously: the life of Robert Oppenheimer and his little-known battle with schizophrenia, Jacques Lacan's struggles with his theories of identification/paranoia, and a host of characters whose lives have been dramatically changed by September 11, 2001. Infused with images of sensuality and ripe with emotional and physical nakedness, "The Bomb" discovers the huge love that can be created in the face of today's postmodern apocalyptic culture.
