About This Show

“This play is spectacular.” -Prague Post
“An amazing theatrical experience.”

Following a critically acclaimed European tour, Built for Collapse returns to New York with its award-winning, physically charged production of Nuclear Love Affair. Unnerving rhythms, disturbing text, and violent slapstick collide to create an erotic pop culture explosion in this multimedia investigation of the Atomic Age. Featuring Elvis dancing through Vietnam, Charlie Chaplin at Hiroshima, and Marilyn Monroe teaching us how to “Duck and Cover,” Nuclear Love Affair is a daring take on the evolution of the American Dream.

Directed by Sanaz Ghajarrahimi
