Taking a cue from the space industry, Jay Scheib pits hard Science against Philip K. Dick in his unpredictable and explosive “antic play – half lab-rat experiment and half sex farce” (The New Yorker). Interplanetary speculation runs amok, the indigenous population gets screwed, and a strange and sexy “anomalous” chick seems to hold all the answers. Developed at MIT with a team of Mars researchers and anthropologists, a mission to colonize the Red Planet is revving up for 2017. Imagining what might happen once we get there, Scheib drops seven performers into a simulated Martian society. Can’t make ends meet on Earth? Consider a one-way ticket to Mars!

With performances by Karl Allen, Dorka Gryllus, Caleb Hammond, László Keszég, Catherine McCurry, Tanya Selvaratnam, April Sweeney, Natalie, Thomas, Balázs Vajna with special on-camera appearances by Waris Ahluwalia, Phillip
Cunio, Kofi Hope-Gund, Henrik Hargitai, Zahra Khan, and Dr. Robert
Zubrin and others…
