'Boom' is a solo one-act play that tells the tale of a sentimental bomb-maker whose tangled relations with his desperate hometown are tested with the return of an old rival.

'Boom' first debuted at Bellingham's legendary iDiOM Theater in December, 2007. It was created and is performed by Andrew Connor, who is also one-half of physical comedy-theatre duo The Cody Rivers Show (www.codyrivers.com).

"Extremely talented writer and performer Andrew Connor definitely gives you your money's worth with Boom, a terrific piece of theatre that is literally and figuratively 'the bomb.'"
New York Theater

"Connor is a remarkably talented actor who jumps from characterization to characterization in a split second...This show is something special."
Minneapolis City Pages

"This play has it all....It's a blast!"
CBC - Montreal

"Connor switches between personalities with such believability and aplomb, you’d think there are six or seven people on stage...A versatile, witty and comically honest performance."
Vue Weekly

"...sweet satire..."
Seattle Weekly

"The way Connor slams his scenes together with a relentless sense of rhythm sets the charge, and his virtuosic comic technique will leave you exploding with laughter."
The Georgia Straight (Vancouver)
