fruitlessmoon theatreworks to Premiere AMERICAN CARNAGE: A LOVE STORY at City Heights Performance Annex

fruitlessmoon theatreworks will present the world premiere of AMERICAN CARNAGE: A LOVE STORY written and directed by Aimee Greenberg opening in November 2017 at City Heights Performance Annex in San Diego.

Part sci-fi, part thriller, part love story . . . a dystopian look at the future shaped by current events, AMERICAN CARNAGE: A LOVE STORY introduces an 'evolved' species who has faint echos from the cosmos trickling through him creating feelings he didn't expect to have . . . how else would a robot sing a refrain of a song he has never heard?

Based in San Diego, fruitlessmoon theatreworks is committed to producing original and established works in both traditional and unconventional spaces. Since 2013, Artistic Director Aimee Greenberg has challenged audiences with bold staging, poetic language and uncompromising vision. ReceNT Productions: Light Falling Down (with Oceanside Theatre Company), Occupy the Rice Fields, (presented at Space 4 Art and North Coast Rep), A Midsummer Night's Dream in Zoro Garden, Balboa Park and Waiting for Godot at the White Box. In addition to this premiere of AMERICAN CARNAGE: A LOVE STORY, watch for a very exciting site-specific The Tempest on the boards for SummerShakes next year!
