Synopsis: The Catastrophist is an intimate, time-jumping, science-fueled, memory-leaping, one-person play based on the life and work of virologist and pandemic expert, Dr. Nathan Wolfe. Set 3 years before the novel coronavirus emerged, and written during the lockdowns of 2020, this true story of love, family, and loss dives into the profundities of scientific exploration, the prescience of pandemic predition, and the harrowing realities of facing your own mortality. The Catastrophist is a new theatrical experience, published here in its premiere production edition, built of and for this moment.
