World Builders

Johnna Adams’ World Builders is a dark comedy about two people who fall in love during a psychiatric drug trial. Whitney and Max both have personality disorders that cause them to retreat into imaginary worlds–until a new treatment offers them a chance to dramatically change their lives. As the pills take effect and the fantasies subside, Max and Whitney must weigh the costs of entering the “real” world versus leaving their own behind. Directed by Artistic Director Cait Robinson, this New England premiere will be held on stage at the historic Stonington Opera House.
