These five plays, and these directors, make up the Voltron of HUMAN CONTACT: SHORT SCI-FI PLAYS, coming your way this July 11-19 at Boston Playwrights’ Theatre. Here they go:
REEVOLVING. An accident wipes the memories of one human and two aliens alone on a space station. Who are they and what are they to each other? Directed by THOMAS P. KEE.
BUCKET LIST. A time-travelling overachieving grad student must tackle questions of love and family while dodging a jealous academic rival, all out of linear order. Directed by ANDY HICKS.
ANY BURDEN. A young bar-hopper becomes a pawn in a high-stakes peace negotiation, and his only chance at freedom lies in making a telepathic connection with a starship captain with a tortured past. Directed by LIZ ADAMS.
THE NANOBOTS. A human and an alien decide to give an intimate relationship a go with the help of advanced nanotechnology. Will they make it? Directed by WANDA STRUKUS.
REAL. A retired veteran from the losing side of a war uses virtual reality to make a fresh start, but how long can he keep going before he is exposed? Directed by AMY BENNETT-ZENDZIAN.
Gosh folks…you just have to audition for these directors. You can do so on APRIL 28 & 29. Full audition info can be found here.
