- Event Details
Rude Mechs is proud to present the first fully mounted production of “NOW NOW OH NOW,” previously presented in various workshop versions under the working title “CL1000P.”
Inspired by evolutionary biology, the Brontës, and LARP** communities, “NOW NOW OH NOW” invites you to enter into an interactive puzzle for the stage about the importance and impermanence of selecting for pleasure over survival. A triptych tribute to everyone’s inner geek, “NOW NOW OH NOW” embodies Rude Mechs’ desire to create a more tangible, social, active, and personal experience for the audience. The performance marries serious scientific content and with the nerdy pleasure of puzzles and gaming, and the undeniable satisfaction of Murder Mystery Theatre. This intimate consideration of how our individual choices lead us through life and impacts the world takes a locked room puzzle, a lecture on sexual selection in evolutionary biology, and the world's weirdest night of Dungeons and Dragons and weaves them all together to paint a picture of why the things you find beautiful are important to the world.
“NOW NOW OH NOW” is performed for an intimate audience of only 30 people, so there will be several showings of the performance each night. The audience experience is roaming so we recommend that you wear comfortable shoes and consider leaving big purses and bags at home.
