World Premiere: play about the life and work of a renowned pandemic expert

*** Extended Through July 25! ***

How do you plan for a catastrophe?

Virologist Nathan Wolfe, named one of TIME’s 100 Most Influential People in the World for his work tracking viral pandemic outbreaks, proposed pandemic insurance years before the novel coronavirus outbreak.

No one bought it.

Now, in a post-COVID world, we hear his story—presented as cinematic digital theatre.

MTC Playwright in Residence Lauren Gunderson returns with a time-jumping tale based on the life and work of Nathan Wolfe (who also happens to be her husband). Though not a play about COVID19, it is a true story of a pandemic expert.

An interactive deep dive into the profundities of scientific exploration and the harrowing realities of facing your own mortality, The Catastrophist is a world premiere theatrical experience built of and for this moment in time.

World Premiere Digital Co-Production with Round House Theatre.

Jasson Minadakis – Director

William DeMerritt – Nathan
