It?s the way far distant future, AD 2010, and it?s a bad time to be human. Lonely human freedom fighter
Kate Brick plans a last stand against the oppressive Artas, artificial life forms who control humankind
through torture, brainwashing, and Foursquare. But judging by the apathy of her lover Dehnise Compuserve
and of her fellow humans, it may be too late.
2010 is a synthpop-infused, queer-friendly musical comedy homage to the great dystopian classics of the
1980s and '90s. Playwright Carl Danielson brilliantly riffs on classics like Blade Runner, Max Headroom,
The Matrix, and Snow Crash. Meanwhile, local songwriter/audio producer Andy Hicks (of The
Pluto Tapes) provides delightfully twisted tunes like ""Near Futuristic Dystopia!"" and ""Bangor Boogie."
