Jess is tanking in Physics, so her mom hires Lloyd to help her pass.
But she’d rather study his son, the survivor of a lightning strike that killed his girlfriend a year ago, and tattooed his body with elegant scars. When Lloyd and Mom hit it off, these two broken families are bound ever closer, inexorably -- with explosive results. An intricate, atmospheric tale of love, sex, and the unseen forces that draw us together and drive us apart.

Content Warning: Sing the Body Electric contains references to domestic abuse and suicide.

Strobe lights will be used in this production.
