The God Cluster will be produced at Broom Street Theater and directed by Sean Langenecker, running Oct 4-25. Rehearsals begin August 25 and will generally be in the Sun-Thurs, 7-10pm range based on conflicts. Actors will receive a stipend in addition to a share of the 'actors box'.

The God Cluster, subtitled 'a queer pandemic revenge tragedy', is a new thrilling three-hander that takes place in a vaccine lab during the next pandemic, exploring morality through medicine and love through loss. A forceful, blatant trio of characters engage in a neo-trolley problem that will have audiences gasping throughout and debating well after the curtain falls.

Dr. Nasir (F, 20-35) is the new intern in the lab of a brilliant neurologist who is working on a vaccine for the latest pandemic. She is Muslim, wears a hajib, idolizes her boss and is unwillingly pulled into the debate of the century all while losing touch with everything she thought she knew about herself and finding someone completely new.
