The depths of mankind’s last unknown frontiers – outer space and a grieving heart – are explored in this new play about a woman’s solo journey to Mars.

In SPACEMAN, the difficulties of interplanetary space travel are brought to life in exacting detail.  Radiation exposure, long term weightlessness, low light, extensive communication delays and poor hygiene are just a few of the challenges astronaut Molly Jennis must face as the first to Mars.  But she soon finds nothing compares to the psychological effects of having so much time alone.  Time spent mulling over the decisions she has made and what might be waiting for her when she finally reaches her destination.

“We’re all humans and the idea of sending one of our kind on a trip like that would be a wonderful adventure for the entire world. the whole world would get behind it.” – James McLane, Former NASA engineer discussing a one-way, solo trip to Mars

_AB16792SpacemanMaster“…a masterpiece of science fiction. It avoids the fippery of space adventure while conveying the heroism of space travel. It imparts that classic sense of wonder, marveling at humanity’s potential and the courage that drives our endeavors. This is a work of compassion, humor, and keen insight.” — Aaron Grunfeld, NY Science Fiction Review

“…a performance of extraordinary range and depth and mettle: this is one of the most astonishingly controlled and nuanced pieces of acting I have seen in a very long time.” Martin Denton, NYtheatre.com
