New York Innovative Theater Award nominee for Best Premiere Production, Best Scenic Design and Innovative Design
1F, 2M Whirlwind centers around Bethany, a health and safety manager for wind developer Arrow Energy, as she is tasked with distracting and diverting the efforts of Michael, a wildlife advocate, from challenging the expansion of their wind farm—an assignment that becomes all the more complicated when the two become romantically entangled, while Bethany also dodges inappropriate courting from her boss, Cooper. Darkly comedic and unpredictable, Whirlwind explores the precarious intersection of business, science, and sexual politics involved when “going green.”
