Welcome to FUSE theatre of connecticut!

FUSE is an inclusive organization dedicated to educational outreach, development of new works, opportunities for career-oriented artists, exemplary training programs and a commitment to producing high quality theatrical productions in the Greater New Haven area.

Our Mission: To ignite a passion for theatre arts in youth and adults in Connecticut.

It is the summer of 2020.  A global pandemic has rocked the land and altered the way humans interact and manage relationships. Suddenly, we are all dependent upon our devices to maintain our connections with the outside world.

 

Theseus, Mayor of Athens, Facetimes his fiancé Hippolyta about wedding plans when an affluent city merchant interrupts them with a Zoom call, complaining that his daughter is out of control and demanding intervention by law.  Little do they realize this is just the beginning of the chaos and confusion to ensue in the coming days.  What was that flitting across the screen?  A random text? A catfishing attempt? Is there a hacker or a computer virus affecting everyone’s computers and cell phones?  Turns out it is a parallel world of microscopic fairies that live in the Internet who can wreak havoc on humans at will.  Their Fairy King and Queen are at war with one another, and their marital strife has unleashed unprecedented havoc upon the natural world in the form of disastrous weather events, social discord and disease.

 

Join us as we follow the trail of these troublemaking fairies as they toy with the destinies of four young lovers whose social lives are inextricably tied to the virtual universe. And as the lovers fight their way through relational confusion, we enjoy the antics of a small but merry band of Essential Workers whose only dream is to present their Zoom play at the wedding feast of Theseus and Hippolyta.  But they, too, stumble into the sights of the fairies and their dream, temporarily, becomes a nightmare.
