Eight people walk into a strip bar in Williston, North Dakota, but can they ever leave? A dark play about redemption and maybe second chances.

"The void, the concept of nothingness, is terrifying to most people on the planet. And I get anxiety attacks myself. I know the fear of that void. You have to learn to die before you die. You give up, surrender to the void, the nothingness." -H.D.S.

Boom Boom Town contains explicit language, sexual scenarios, nudity, smoking, and simulated sex and drug use.
