A burnt-out hermit nurses a broken arm and makes lists from memory—of endangered species, moments of Lost Time, Incorrect States of Mind—in company with her only friend, a gray fox with a bad attitude. When wild fires approach they flee through the wilderness, pursued by would-be rescuers and threatened by a mythic-punk psychopomp. The Broken Machine, a provocative climate-chaos tragicomedy, was commissioned by Lehigh’s Department of Theatre and written by the 2018-2019 Theodore U. Horger ’61 Artist-in-Residence in the Performing Arts. Liz Duffy Adams “is an artist of playful and highly literate imagination, radical instincts, and sardonic but generous humor.” ~~San Francisco Bay Guardian
