The environment is on the verge of collapse. Humanity has passed the point of no return. And all the insects are disappearing. 

This is the world of Somewhere, a new play by the university's playwright-in-residence, Marisela Trevino Orta, specially commissioned by Temple Theaters and receiving its world premiere at Temple's Randall Theater. 

Step backstage with a behind-the-scenes photo gallery and learn how the creative team brought the play to life.

Somewhere runs through February 9 at Randall Theater. For show times and ticket information, visit tfma.temple.edu/events.
