Fruitlessmoon theatreworks presents the world premiere of "American Carnage: A Love Story," written and directed by San Diegan Aimee Greenberg.

An unlikely love story - part sci-fi and part thriller . . . "American Carnage: A Love Story" pulls back the curtain on a future where high technology manifests organically within humans and manufactured beings.

The play introduces “YML” from an evolved species who is accidentally exposed to echoes of late Second Millennium arts and culture which trigger feelings he didn't expect to have . . . how else could an octobot know a song he has never before heard?

Delilah and her brother are in the Badlands desperately trying to evade the Guards sent from a narcissistic mad leader who has a blind and seemingly devoted daughter - it’s a tale of alternate worlds examining the idea of what is human, where are boundaries when senses have been removed.

The surprising sweetness of YML as he navigates from one world to the other is encouraging and touching . . . can experimental beings cross over to a world of feeling in a society where feelings have been lost?

"American Carnage: A Love Story" presents a dystopian look at a future shaped by current events.

The play runs Nov. 9 through 26, and all performances have a post-show discussion. For ticket information call (949) 246-1698.

Dates and times of events are subject to change without notice. Always check the event organizer's website for the most updated schedule before attending.
