News   Cast Set for World Premiere of Halfnight's Artifacts of Consequence
 
The world premiere of Ashlin Halfnight's apocalyptic satire Artifacts of Consequence will be presented at The Wild Project beginning April 16.

Electric Pear Productions and Performance Lab 115 present the limited engagement, which will be directed by Kristjan Thor (The Sexual Neuroses of Our Parents). Artifacts of Consequence officially opens April 21 and runs through May 2.

According to press notes, "In a crumbling, burnt-out America, an underwater bunker stores the relics of our everyday lives: Barbie, Moby Dick, Twinkies and bond traders are all preserved in a labyrinthine warehouse, shelved in boxes, awaiting the stabilization of the continent above. One woman is charged with safeguarding our cultural artifacts for the rebuilding of a great society… but the walls are leaking, resources are running out, and her wide-eyed assistant is hell-bent on losing her virginity to the first man she can find."

The cast features Sara Buffamanti, Tobias Burns, Hanna Cheek, Marty Keiser, Rebecca Lingafelter, Jayd McCarty and Amy Newhall.

Designing Artifacts of Consequence are Jennifer de Fouchier (set design), Kathleen Dobbins (lighting design), Amelia Dombrowski (costume design) and Mark Valadez (composer/sound design).

Tickets for Artifacts are available by phoning (212) 352-3101 or by visiting ElectricPear. The Wild Project is located at 195 East Third Street, between Avenues A & B, in Manhattan.
