The Listening Room
by Michaela Jeffery
and Lori Kee
at The New Ohio Theater @154 Christopher Street.
Shows from November 30th - December 21st, 2019
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.
