RAY GUN SAYONARA
By Steven Tenney

The Listening Room: At the heart of a forgotten society calling itself The Earie, young dissidents use radio telescopes to salvage fragments of earlier civilizations still ricocheting between stars. These ‘Listeners’ fight against growing pressure from the governing central Council, whose hold over the imaginations of the population of The Earie has all but buried the practice of ‘Listening.’ As the tone of their world tilts away from discourse and curiosity toward emotional rhetoric and fear-fueled isolationism, the last remaining Listeners strike out wildly against the new reality.
Ray Gun Sayonara: Buck Law helms a dark-ops sci-fi adventure. Mission: to extract Brad Mayhem from an alien world he has inadvertently turned into a never-ending Princess Prom. With original songs and score to accompany the existential crises.
Nylon Fusion Theatre Company, born of a fusion of New York and London creativity, is committed to giving voice and perspective to established and emerging artists. They develop and produce plays that explore political, social and cultural awareness.
