Bomb-like, Counting to Zero counts down from ten, across ten scenes, towards an explosive end. Ten seemingly unconnected stories about, among other things, a train, fireworks, a young reality star and her stalker, a sick dog, and a dead cow, are little by little woven together into a humorous and touching depiction of what it is like to be young in our media-obsessed culture. All of the 17 characters in the play have one thing in common: a deeply human need to be seen and heard.
