Brown Bodies on a Blue Earth

The Underground Theater

About the project and the company

In a distant, or not so distant, future where the sun has gotten dangerously close to Earth, all of the rich (and mostly white) people load into spaceships and relocate to the moon, leaving the poor (and mostly minority) people on Earth to literally burn. As the heat increases and the chances of survival shrink, a group of individuals must face their regrets, loss, dreams, personal traumas and pains.

SPECIAL NOTE:
The Underground Theater actively seeks performers who identify as BIPOC or from marginalized groups for diverse and inclusive casting opportunities. We encourage performers of all ethnicities, gender identities, and ages, as well as performers with disabilities, to submit. Should you have any questions feel free to reach out to our team at any time at hello@theundergroundtheater.org.
Additional Project Info:
For this play, all creatives involved will be included in a 25% profit sharing pool of ticket sales. Only considering Seattle Locals.
