BURST, a new character-oriented radio drama that explores issues of environmentalism, industry, and ambition, is now available on demand.
Produced by Caltech Theater, the drama is the latest from the MACH-33 series of science-themed plays.
The story revolves around Silicon Valley wunderkind Sarah Boyd as her start-up, Tactix, prepares to announce a revolutionary new polymer that will drastically reduce plastic waste across the globe. But at the eleventh hour, Sarah faces a bevy of unexpected problems: a missing assistant, an unwelcome reporter, and unrelenting ethical concerns from her cautious CTO and longtime friend Jennifer Weaver.
Unfolding in real time, this fast-paced character-oriented drama examines gender politics through a nuanced portrait of a woman determined to save the world.
