February 11 - March 20, 2016

Narrated by the ghost of a missing 15-year-old girl, and woven together by a chorus of parents of lost and missing children, Zadravec’s lyrical, edgy poetry explores the cost one family is willing to pay for a second chance. In an effort to get their lives on track, recovering addicts Mark and Julia have taken over an apple orchard in rural Oregon when their estranged son reappears in their lives. With little experience and a family in crisis, the couple quickly realizes they are in over their heads, yet they believe if they produce a viable crop, a new beginning is possible. Set against the contemporary plagues of meth addiction, missing children, and a failing ecology, Colony Collapse is equal parts Greek tragedy and American drama, illuminating a search for humanity in a world with little shelter from harm. 

February 20 - September 24, 2016

The Theatre @ Boston Court's 2016 3-play season includes the world premiere of Colony Collapse, by Stefanie Zadravec, the Southern California premiere of The Golden Dragon, by Roland Schimmelpfennig, and a National New Play Network rolling world premiere of Bars and Measures, by Idris Goodwin.
