Spaceman takes you on an outer space journey on board the Aeneas, a spacecraft headed to mars. Manning the craft is the Aeneas’ lone passenger, astronaut Molly Jennis (played by Erin Treaday) – a confident and highly likable scientist who has become homesick in her now 7 months of solitary travel.
Written by Leegrid Stevens, directed by Jacob Titus, and produced by the Loading Dock Theatre, Spaceman delves into the struggles of hope and control and how either can tether us to dreams. If you enjoy powerful theater about strong people being brought to their knees (and science, and space travel), I recommend you go see it.
Spaceman is playing until March 9, 2019 at the Wild Project in the East Village. Tickets are $20–$30.
