Inspired by two years of working in a COVID ICU, Ernie Lijoi's new play, The God Cluster, follows three medical professionals in a vaccine development laboratory during a new pandemic in a near and likely future. The main character, Dr. Lee, a neurologist enraged by a history of queer trauma at the hands of religious people and emboldened by an impending climate apocalypse ignored by theistic governments, makes a choice in the name of the greater good that leads to personal and global tragedy… or perhaps salvation. Part fever dream, part prognosis, The God Cluster asks us to reconsider in whose hands we put our lives.
