ABOUT TUCKER'S COVE
The year is 2070...Mother Earth is in disarray. Paper is forbidden and natural disasters seem to be a regular occurrence. But there may be hope. Follow the students of Tucker's Cove as they unearth the deadly truth about the campus's most overt organization.
Producer Amanda Washington says, "Tucker’s Cove is a story about pushing boundaries. The work delves into what it means to complete a task or mission no matter the cost. What if these tasks go against one’s personal moral code? Is it ok to go against the grain? All of these questions against the backdrop of climate change make the listener ponder if our work is in vain or can we really make a difference. With the world rethinking how we engage and interact with one another, I believe this is a perfect time to release a story such as Tucker’s Cove, examining the status quo, respecting boundaries, and figuring out when to push back to create a prosperous tomorrow."

A Big Theatrical Feast of Small Plays
It may sound like a joke, but for Elliot and Molly, two intellectuals struggling with the realities of romance, it’s a very real equation that will take both of them working together to solve. When Elliot builds a computer program to help Molly with her research project, the variables in their evolving relationship shift as rapidly as the terms of their experiment.
Written by the Tony-Award-Winning playwright Itamar Moses (Band’s Visit, Nobody Loves You, Fortress of Solitude) this modern rom-com inspires both laughter and empathy when it comes to nerds in love.
At its heart, Completeness is a play about the impossibility of certainty…in life, love, and cellular reproduction. At turns hilarious and seductive, Completeness will inspire both laughter and empathy.
Tickets are free, but donations help our theatre keep going till we can come back live again (suggested donation $10/person). Registration is required. Audiences can register to attend the pre-recorded reading with live intro/post-show discussion at horizontheatre.com/horizon-at-home-completeness.
