Six actors depict the story of a “normal” girl in a British boarding school, where nothing is what it seems. Love and bioethics struggle in a futuristic world of genetic manipulation.
From the creators of The Odyssey (UCI 2015) comes a disquieting thriller inspired by Kazuo Ishiguro’s novel, Never Let Me Go. On Halloween weekend, in a medical theater next to the original UCI morgue, CounterBalance Theater presents Elsewhere, a futuristic story about cloning, medical ethics, and what it means to be human. Six actors play 100 characters, plus the architecture, furniture and natural phenomena in a story where “students” in an exclusive boarding school question their predestined future.

Free and open to the public.
