boom by Peter Sinn Nachtrieb

Blue Hour Theatre Group

About the project and the company

West Seattle’s newest theatre company, Blue Hour Theatre Group, is holding auditions for their second production: “boom,” by Peter Sinn Nachtrieb. Directed by Brian Brooks.

Actors of all ethnicities are encouraged to audition.


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

Jules (M, 25-32) A marine biology graduate student. Socially awkward, gay, science-minded, desperate in many ways.

Jo (F, 22-32) An undergraduate journalism student. Strong, skeptical, a little naïve, and equally desperate in completely different ways.

We share stories that focus on the personal and social effects of an ever-changing world. Our goal is to present compelling human experiences that deal with the inequitable availability of resources, surviving a hostile climate, and the struggles we face to maintain meaningful connections with each other through it all.  Learn more:
