Infectious Opportunity opens today!

A quick reminder that Nosedive’s latest production, Infectious Opportunity, opens at the Brick Theater this weekend as a part of the Antidepressant Festival.

I am immensely proud of how Infectious has turned out. After seeing the tech rehearsal last night I can say with confidence that this is going to be one of the best shows Nosedive has ever staged. The cast is an amazing ensemble of actors that will knock your socks off, the design is a bold, eye-catching step forward for the company and James has written one of his most challenging and rewarding scripts to date. To put it simply, this show rocks.

Since we’re performing as part of a larger festival, the show dates are a bit more unconventional than usual. We have two performances this week on Sunday, June 7th at 5pm and Tuesday June 9th at 8pm, after which we go on a three-week hiatus. We come back for two more performances to close out the festival at the beginning of July (Wednesday, July 1st at 9pm and Friday, July 3rd at 7pm).

Because of this large gap between shows, we need to get all of our word of mouth out there off of the first two shows. Therefore, I strongly urge (read: plead with) you to come to one of the first two performances if you are able to. If you have to catch one of the later shows, I would recommend buying your tickets well in advance, as they are very likely to be sold out performances.

Seriously. This is not one to miss.

Hope to see you at the Brick,

There’s only one problem: he's faked his illness for the past 10 years to boost his career, and is now slowly comprehending the drawbacks of his plan. With the help of his friend Josie, Wes revisits his past and sees how an ill-advised white lie early in life ensnared him in his current situation.
