2010: Our Hideous Future: The Musical!

The theater troupe Unreliable Narrator is on tour with the cyberpunk musical comedy “2010: Our Hideous Future: The Musical!”

Itʼs the way far distant future, AD 2010, and itʼs a bad time to be human. Lonely human freedom fighter Kate Brick plans a last stand against the oppressive Artas, artificial life forms who control humankind through torture, brainwashing, and Foursquare. But judging by the apathy of her lover Dehnise Compuserve and of her fellow humans, it may be too late.

2010 is a synthpop-infused, queer-friendly musical comedy homage to the great dystopian classics of the 1980s and ’90s. Playwright Carl Danielson brilliantly riffs on classics like Blade Runner, Max Headroom, The Matrix, and Snow Crash. Meanwhile, local songwriter/audio producer Andy Hicks (of The Pluto Tapes) provides delightfully twisted tunes like “Near Futuristic Dystopia!” and “Bangor Boogie.”

There are two shows coming up in New England:
July 11 at 8:00pm at 95 Empire in Providence, RI
July 21 at 8:00pm at Griffen Theatre in Salem, MA
