When: Fridays, Saturdays, 8 p.m. and Sundays, 7 p.m. Continues through Dec. 4 2016

Jo is a journalism major currently working on a project that argues that random sex is the last bit of hope in our troubled society. So of course she replies to an internet ad for a brief sexual encounter that will "change the world." Marine biologist Jules placed that ad, and their assignation takes place in his basement apartment, which is also his lab. But how does the woman in the corner manipulating a series of levers figure into their hook-up? Peter Sinn Nachtrieb's comedy boom is about a mismatched couple whose one-night stand suddenly becomes open-ended thanks to forces beyond man's control. R-S Theatrics closes its season with boom. Performances take place at 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 7 p.m. Sunday (November 18 to December 4) at the Chapel (6238 Alexander Drive; Tickets are $15 to $20.
