Martha's (b)Rainstorm: A Boston Fairy Tale

By John J King

Presented by the Boston Center for the Arts & Fresh Ink Theatre Company
South End / Calderwood Pavilion at the BCA
6/7/18 - 6/15/18


Once upon a time, in 2072, rising temps and sea levels threaten to turn Boston into New England's own Venice. But some things in Boston never change: the population doubles in September, the Yankees suck, and nobody speaks to one another—they yell. City Communications Director Martha Morgan needs to chart a course that keeps Bostonians above water, but a Single-Minded Mayor, Arrogant Architect, and a history of segregation stand in her way. And on top of all that, a talking turtle is begging Martha to save its last egg...and its entire species. If Martha hopes save all of Boston's citizens, both human and otherwise, she better hope a rising tide lifts all votes.
