Radium City

Story

In a future as far away as tomorrow, a scientist is about to discover the cure for time. But before he does, his daughter will die. And before he does, an architect will build a tower high enough to cast a shadow over all of history. And before he does, a man will step through the doorway to the place where ideas come from, and turn invisible.

Part fairy tale, part science fiction, Radium City ushers in and celebrates an age of monsters and miracles.

A workshop version of Radium City was performed at the North Street Church, December 2004.
