Nuclear monster story? Science run amok story? Strangers Among us story? You decide.
An exciting Science Fiction genre came into existence in the 1950s named Atomic Sci-fi, when the atomic bomb blast changed the world forever and ushered in a new consciousness of the real dangers of science. It was an expression of anxiety about the threat of nuclear war and what dark places science might take us. The genre includes “Nuclear Monster” movies (The Blob and the Creature from the Black Lagoon) but also “Strangers Among Us? stories (Invasion of the Body Snatchers The Day the Earth Stood Still ), and Science Run Amok (The Fly and the 50-foot woman).
Every Sunday, improvisers will use your suggestion and spontaneously create an Atomic Sci-fi story on stage. Find out … if you dare.
