    Upstream Theater presents the U.S. premiere of Infected by Albert Ostermaier, translated by Philip Boehm.



    A day trader in quarantine delivers a relentless, near-manic monologue that reveals his derailment from the fast track, and the resultant downward, deadly spiral… as though he may have contracted some horrible virus from the stock market monitors themselves. This gripping piece by one of Germany’s leading poet/playwrights is a relentless collage of ideas and images, where past and present collide and where one man’s innermost thoughts ricochet inside his head with all the volatility of a stock market in crisis. A very timely psychological study of a man and a society infected by greed.



    Patrick Siler directs Alan Knoll in this one-man tour-de-force, which features a live soundscape by David A. N. Jackson.

    Tickets $35, $30 for seniors 65 and over, $25 for full-time students with valid ID. 2-for-1 tickets with ARTS Card.
