NOW THEN AGAIN is a romantic comedy with a brain – a love story between two physicists. Set at Fermilab National Accelerator Laboratory, the script tells the story of Ginny and Henry, two scientists who find a future together despite her husband, his neuroses, and their firm belief that there is no such thing as destiny. The future interacts with the past; nature explores alternatives until it resolves them with a buildup to the final transaction.

Playwright Penny Penniston will give a short presentation about her published play before the performance. This play had its world premiere in Chicago, IL at the Bailiwick Repertory Theatre on February 17, 2000. The show quickly brought in packed houses and, within four weeks, it moved to the 500 seat main-stage at the Ivanhoe Theatre. There, it went on to win a Joseph Jefferson Citation for "Best New Work". It was published in 2002 by Broadway Play Publishing. A screenplay adaptation, titled Love is Brilliant, won the Sloan Prize at the 2005 Tribeca Film Festival.

NOW THEN AGAIN will be directed by Merlyn Q. Sell, who is pleased to return to the stages of the Black Hills. Merlyn holds an MFA in Shakespeare & Performance from Mary Baldwin University, and has ten years experience directing and producing theatre in CA and VA.
