Open: 09/08/19- Close: 09/15/19 THE CHAOS THEORY OF NOW
In this intelligent and entertaining solo performance, lesbian comedian and science maven Jennifer Joy Pawlitschek uses science’s chaos theory to illuminate our uncertain times. Inspired in part by her own far-right Republican farm family, Jennifer portrays a diversity of wild characters, including a Trump-voting farm wife, a lesbian liberal rural politician, an Evangelical homeschooling mom, and a teen punk Antifa activist. She reveals how America got to this point - and what’s next in our unsettled country. At the edge of chaos lies either total ruin or creative new beginnings. Which side will we end up on? Who will we become?

Jennifer Joy has performed her science-inspired repertoire at off-Broadway theaters, NASA conferences, and universities across the US.
