BWW Previews: THE ATOM ROOM at Circa Theatre Wellington
The Atom Room
Written by Philip Braithwaite
Directed by Lyndee-Jane Rutherford
The World Premiere of a romantic and thrilling new play by award-winning New Zealand playwright Philip Braithwaite, features new music from electronic music icons MINUIT.
The Atom Room is a thrilling new love story, set within a highly-advanced virtual reality system where couples 'meet' and 'interact' in ways so believable, it might as well be reality itself. Imagine an ultra-modern version of Skype, but you can touch, visit, feel, and love.
Are you more loyal to who you love, or what you love?
Sarah and Danny live in Wellington, 150 years in the future where climate change, tectonic shifts and nuclear accidents have wrecked the environment. Sarah secures an engineering job to create a new colony on Mars, leaving Danny behind on Earth. Can their long-distance relationship survive? Is the Atom Room their only hope?
