“A Deep, Loving, Touching Portrait … That Viewers Can’t Help But Get Swept Up In”
— Marin Independent Journal

How do you plan for catastrophe? Virologist Nathan Wolfe, named one of TIME’s 100 Most Influential People in the World for his work tracking Ebola and swine flu, proposed pandemic insurance years before the novel coronavirus outbreak. No one bought it. Now, in a post-COVID world, we hear his story—presented entirely digitally. Silent Sky playwright Lauren M. Gunderson returns with a time-jumping tale based on the life and work of Nathan Wolfe (who also happens to be her husband). A deep and exciting dive into the profundities of scientific exploration and the realities of facing your own mortality, The Catastrophist is a theatrical experience built of and for this moment in time.
