Act 1: Do You Read Me?
A Stay-at-Home Play by Katrhyn Funkhouser

Everyone at NASA thinks that Dr. Weaver's Mars colony is a joke, because it's full of average joes instead of astronauts. Their mission? To grow the first eggplant on Mars. As Dr. Weaver takes reports from the self-appointed experts, disappointed sci-fi fans, and customer service nightmares that inhabit the colony under the leadership of the arrogant Commander, the mission starts to seem impossible. But could there be more to the story than they're letting on? Written especially for actors to perform on video chat, Do You Read Me? is a space comedy about community.

Act 2: 10 Ways to Survive the End of the World
by Don Zolidis

These days, it feels like the end of the world could happen any minute. But are the machines or the apes going to be the first to rise up against us? Are we looking at a killer asteroid or a killer virus here? Better get ready for them all! Any way the end times arrive, you just might have a shot at survival with this hilarious new how-to guide from the author of 10 Ways to Survive the Zombie Apocalypse.

Students have been hard at work to be creative in the face of the challenges of this year. The typical in person performance was cancelled, due to public health concerns amid the Covid-19 pandemic. The virtual performance will be available for a one-time only viewing on Friday, November 13th at 7:00 p.m. (A fitting date for a Science Fiction Double Feature!) Please join us for a thrilling evening of fantastic virtual theater from the comfort of your own home."
