Two American astronauts sit stranded on the surface of the moon after technical malfunctions prevent them from reconnecting with Bill Griffin, who is orbiting the moon. Tensions rise as the astronauts and Mission Control attempt to rescue a sinking ship. Bill, alone in the Command Module, loses all contact with the outside world with every revolution to the dark side of the moon. It is during this isolation that the stories of these astronauts and their families are revealed.
Our team of seven actors worked as designers, directors, dramaturges, technicians, stage managers, etc. to create a rich and collaborative production. Come join us on the Darkside!
Darkside is presented by special arrangements with SAMUEL FRENCH, INC.
