    Human Contact: Short Sci-Fi Plays

     Human Contact: Short Sci-Fi Plays is an evening of five thought-provoking one-acts that ask whether technology robs the soul or augments it. These original tales, written by Carl Danielson, explore the evolution of the nature of humankind as we confront aliens, time travel, self-directed evolution, and more. With well-crafted stories performed by a large cast of Boston’s finest actors, “Human Contact” is a unique vision of the 21st Century’s future. The plays of Human Contact:

    REEVOLVING. Directed by Thomas P. Kee.
    An accident wipes the memories of one human and two aliens alone on a space station. Who are they and what are they to each other?

    BUCKET LIST. Directed by Andy Hicks
    A time-travelling overachieving grad student must tackle questions of love and family while dodging a jealous academic rival, all out of linear order.

    ANY BURDEN. Directed by Liz Adams.
    A young bar-hopper becomes a pawn in a high-stakes peace negotiation, and his only chance at freedom lies in making a telepathic connection with a starship captain with a tortured past.

    THE NANOBOTS. Directed by Wanda Strukus
    A human and an alien decide to give an intimate relationship a go with the help of advanced nanotechnology. Will they make it?

    REAL. Directed by Amy Bennett-Zendzian
    A retired veteran from the losing side of a war uses virtual reality to make a fresh start, but how long can he keep going before he is exposed?
