SEA DOG THEATER is pleased to announce the world premiere production of Chris Cragin-Day’s THE RARE BIOSPHERE, directed by award-winning Christopher Domig. THE RARE BIOSPHERE will play a 21 performance limited engagement at Calvary St. George's (61 Gramercy Park North, NY, NY 10010). Performances begin Thursday, April 25th and continue through Sunday, May 19. Sophie, a Honduran-American teenager, comes home from high school to find that her parents have been deported. She immediately goes into bunker-down survival mode, trying to care for her younger siblings without raising suspicion and considering her next move. Her plan is complicated when Steven, a well-meaning friend, oblivious to the issues she’s facing, discovers and struggles to comprehend her situation. Sophie is an impressive student, a Dreamer, with plans to study Molecular Genetics and Microbiology at Duke University. She is fascinated with what is known as the “Rare Biosphere,” a term that refers to rare, previously overlooked, microbial species that play a crucial role in regulating Earth’s ecosystems.

SEA DOG THEATER is pleased to announce the world premiere production of Chris Cragin-Day’s THE RARE BIOSPHERE, directed by award-winning Christopher Domig. THE RARE BIOSPHERE will play a 21 performance limited engagement at Calvary St. George's (61 Gramercy Park North, NY, NY 10010). Performances begin Thursday, April 25th and continue through Sunday, May 19.

Sophie, a Honduran-American teenager, comes home from high school to find that her parents have been deported. She immediately goes into bunker-down survival mode, trying to care for her younger siblings without raising suspicion and considering her next move. Her plan is complicated when Steven, a well-meaning friend, oblivious to the issues she’s facing, discovers and struggles to comprehend her situation.

Sophie is an impressive student, a Dreamer, with plans to study Molecular Genetics and Microbiology at Duke University. She is fascinated with what is known as the “Rare Biosphere,” a term that refers to rare, previously overlooked, microbial species that play a crucial role in regulating Earth’s ecosystems.

The play draws a parallel between our current immigration crisis with the beauty and necessity of diversity in our ecosystem, offering an unique underrepresented perspective into a broken system that many of us only experience through news reports.

The production stars Natalia Plaza as Sophie and Zac Owens as Steven.

The production features scenic and lighting design by Guy De Lancey and costume design by Emily White. Tye Hunt Fitzgerald is the sound designer and Harrison Corthell is the stage manager.

THE RARE BIOSPHERE plays the following schedule:

Wednesday at 8:00 p.m.
Thursday at 8:00 p.m.
Friday at 8:00 p.m.
Saturday at 3:00 pm** and 8:00 p.m.

* There is no Wednesday performance the first week. The only Sunday performances are Opening Night April 28 and Closing Night, Sunday May 19 at 8:00 p.m.
