Synopsis per Dramatists Play Service:

“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

Some other tidbits to consider:

boom was the most-produced play of the 2009-2010 season.

-Our production is the first production of boom in Genesee County (the nearest production we could find records of was East Lansing).

The OhR’lyeh Theatre Company:  Katie Mizell – Artistic Director/Resident Artist; Carl Mizell – Director/Resident Artist; Jessica Smith – Resident Artist

    Just read the above press release and wanted to point out that “boom” was presented as a staged reading on the Off the Press Series at Flint Youth Theatre in 2010. Kody C. Jones (a native of Clio) was in it, Karla Froelich was the woman playing the timpani, and I directed it. It’s funny, thought-provoking…and a lot of props! Break a leg!
