Additional Info

Picking up twelve years after the events of Advance Man, Blast Radius follows a sister and a brother at mortal odds in an Earth radically changed by an alien occupation. Ronnie leads a desperate human insurgency that might have finally found the weapon that will turn the tide – at a terrible cost. Abbie, who has allied himself with the conquering alien race, may have found a chilling solution that will end human resistance for good. Action-packed and emotionally charged, Blast Radius is the story of a family and a world at war with itself.

Reviews

REVIEWS 

Critics' Pick! "It’s a credit to the propulsive plotting that amid debates about dissent, love and honesty, the question Blast Radius most frequently prompts is simply: What happens next?” - The New York Times, Read More

"Rogers, Williams, and their superb ensemble thrive in what is essentially a wartime love story in which lethal circumstances yield earnest emotions and heartbreaking betrayals." - Backstage, Read More

"Blast Radius is a moving piece of theatre that pays a deep respect to its genre, but ultimately transcends it. Jordana Williams’ tight pacing and beautiful direction squeezes out every ounce of hurt, love, and emotion that Rogers' script has afforded them. This triumphant production shows that, while we’re dealing with complex things that are out of this world, the heart of any great sci-fi piece, or for that matter any great drama, is its simple humanity." - Indie Theater Now, Read More
