Event Notes

× Things aren't going great for Anna, or the rest of the planet for that matter. As executive director of the flailing Center for the Preservation of Uncharismatic Species, she has a front row seat to a global mass extinction event. As her mother's caretaker, she's reminded daily reminder of our inevitable decline. And though a ubiquitous augmented reality platform renders a pretty face on it all, the flood waters keep rising, the food supply keeps dwindling, and there is a pervasive sense that humanity's best days are behind us. In this context, the worldwide search for the first Mars colonists becomes a source of great hope. Anna is hopeful that there, with a human species attempting to start over, she can start over too. Now she just has to get her hands on a golden ticket. A PlayGround/Planet Earth Arts co-commission. Directed by Susi Damilano. Featuring: Melissa Ortiz* (“Anna”), Wilma Bonet*, Soren Oliver*, Christian Haines*, Aaron Wilton*, and Katie Rubin*
* Member, Actors’ Equity Association
