Barter Theatre: Airness

June 30, 2022 - July 20, 2022


June 30th – August 20th

by Chelsea Marcantel

When Nina enters her first air guitar competition, she thinks winning will be easy. But as she befriends a group of charismatic nerds all committed to becoming the next champion, she discovers that there’s more to this art form than playing pretend. Will Nina be able to let go and find the raw joy of air guitar? Following Nina’s mission to shred or be shredded, Airness is an exuberant reminder that everything we need to Rock is already inside us.

This production contains adult language and humor.

Produced by special arrangement with Playscripts, Inc. (www.playscripts.com)
