Cheers To New! is a Staged Reading Series featuring new plays and a drinking game. Come drink along with us and experience some new work in a new way! We are always Pay-What-You-Can, and will take any donations you’d like to give at the door.
March’s play is Small Steps by Briandaniel Ogelsby.
“Skip Powers realizes that no one will ever love him, he volunteers to go to Mars — and the Principal of NASA says, “Yeah, sure. You’ll do.” Skip is super gay and isn’t really a participant in the gene pool, so it just makes sense to send him millions of miles on the the spaceship Atlantis on a mission that will, in all likelihood, kill him. And after crappy experiences on gay hookup apps, he’s more than prepared for the training with the Abstinence Coach — but a little less prepared when the Love of His Life tries to keep him on earth. This play about what it means to attempt to live your life in the pursuit of great things spans a million years and fifty-five million miles.”
