Why: “It’s nice to see you again. Do you think love will be able to exist in the new world?” James Cowan asks in a chat during a Zoom meeting. “I think it’s gonna have to,” Annelise Lawson replies. “How?” Cowan wants to know. Source Material Collective addresses that concern in the new Zoom play In These Uncertain Times, made during and about the coronavirus crisis. Based in Los Angeles, New York, and Reykjavík, the multidisciplinary troupe has produced such pieces as Light, Into the Fog, and A Thousand Tongues, pushing the boundaries of what theater is and can do — and now wondering if it can survive the pandemic lockdown. The hourlong In These Uncertain Times will be performed live on July 25-26 and August 1-2, directed by company founder and artistic director Samantha Shay.
