Back by popular demand, this unique play, set in modern-day Russia, is essentially a live concept album; the audience is guided through the evening by an onstage DJ. There are ten tracks - scenes that are constructed like prose songs.

DC Metro Theater Arts - Highly Recommended

"...Taffety Punk Theatre Company's Oxygen, written by Ivan Vyrpaev, is a self- proclaimed post apocalyptic mix tape but it's so much more. Directors Lise Bruneau and Chris Curtis tackled the challenge of creating ten completely unique, but wondrously intertwined chapters of stories that could have been our own, yet seem so far from reality. Set in a gritty Russian city that time forgot, Oxygen will captivate the story lover in you as its handcrafted music by DC locals highlights the highs and lows of this emotional thrill ride."

MD Theatre Guide - Recommended

"...In the end, Oxygen offers its audience a state of being, a consciousness in search of conscience. It seeks to deliver a theatrical experience that is utterly 21st century, a virtual solipsism wedded to its ipod and its ipad and its iphone and its i-world (a yet to be created reality soon to be at your nearest i-store)-a solipsism that is seemingly unpuncturable. Meaning, we have become but a population of "i(s)" without a common language or set of Commandments."

Oxygen, the heartfelt, low-fi show is exemplary Taffety Punk: moodily political, punchy as a vodka Red Bull, and itching with a raw sensuality.
