The Runaways Lab and Voice of the City are proud to announce the second offering of their 2016-2017 season, Goddamn Geniuses. This original play, by company member Nathaniel Shane and Artistic Director Gannon Reedy, uses one of the Runaways’ staples of reimagining an historic event in a fast and loose piece of theater. Explore the limitations of live entertainment as the heralds of quantum physics launch into a gender blurred reality where anything can happen to a docile scientist.
“At the 1927 Solvay conference a group of brilliant physicists engage in a passionate discussion about the nature of reality and the relationships that define who they are. Then, a time traveling pleasure-surfer with a briefcase full of swords, firearms, and magic bandanas, interrupts them. He alerts them to the hundreds of transdimensional demons hot on their heels and hungry for blood. A play both ambitious in intellect and breathless in stupidity, it pushes the capacity of onstage chaos to radical heights.”
Goddamn Geniuses runs February 10th- March 5th Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays at 7pm, at Voice of the City, 3429 W Diversey Ave*. Tickets are on sale Monday January 9th @ runawayslab.org
*Voice of the City a non-profit organization and the official co-producer of this production.
