When: November 13 and 14 at 8 pm
Where: New River Barn, 839 River Road, Todd, NC
Admission: $5
Is time a wave or a particle? Is the future closer than you think? Is the end of the world near? Can a hero be a terrorist? Did Schrödinger kill any cats? Can a baseball game go on too long?

For the answers to these and other questions, come to the world premiere of Black Sheep Theatre's newest production, The World Serious, November 13 and 14 at 8 pm at the New River Barn, 839 River Road in Todd, North Carolina. Admission is $5.00.

The World Serious, written and directed by Dennis Bohr, is set in the 2455th inning of Game Seven of the World Series between the Texas-by-God White Boys and the Floating Island of San Francisco Refugees in a futuristic world which was once the United States of America before fracking, weather catastrophes, and World Wars III, IV, and V reshaped the globe. The play is satirical examination of contemporary America and deals with terrorism, racism, sexism, refugees, politics, time travel, and baseball.
