Bonding Over Shared Anxieties
Mily Mumford’s upcoming show “Generation Post Script,” plays at Studio 1398 from April 11th-16th. Mily is a queer up and coming playwright in Vancouver, and very active in the community.
Vancouver, BC – It is two generations into the future. What is left of humanity survives in space stations in orbit around our planet. Interstellar travel is not yet possible and Earth is uninhabitable. A misfit group of college students of the “post script” generation—the first to be born in space—bond over their shared anxieties and a desire to reconcile what happened to the rest of their species.
The Nebula Company Theatre is a not for profit theatre company in Vancouver. Mumford brings an immediacy and tangibility to the current climate crisis by setting her story in the future two generations from now. Her characters have a charming meta-theatrical self-awareness that allows us to experience the world after apocalypse with humour and poignancy.
The Cast of Generation Post Script features Jessie nominated actor Xander Williams, as well as Ming Hudson (Post Secret). Actor Douglas Ennenber (The Nether) who plays Facebot, a social-media robot created to fulfill the needs of humans in a post-apocalyptic world says: “The chance to draw inspiration from such dramatic figures as C3PO, HAL, Data and Maria, will be an exciting new challenge’. The cast also include Bailey Soleil Creed and Levi Schneider.
In a future world where earth is uninhabitable due to climate disaster, a group of teens surviving in a space station struggle to experience human connection.
