A marine biologist hosts a journalism student in his subterranean biology lab for an erotic "casual encounter." As disaster looms upon the planet, the fate of their "date" takes on monumental importance. BOOM is an epic and intimate comedy of evolution, loneliness, and how to survive.

“Sex to change the course of the world…” A grad student’s personal ad lures a randy journalism coed to his subterranean lab, where he studies fish sleep cycles for signs of the apocalypse.

A nerdy marine biologist calculates that the end of the world is near and posts an online personals ad, hoping to romance the girl that will help him ensure the survival of the species. But when push comes to shove, saving life on earth on the first date proves to be a bit of a challenge. Exciting new playwright Nachtrieb brings us this funny, slightly warped and ultimately hopeful look at the apocalypse.
