Pale Blue Dot(s)
Written by Erin Mallon • Direction by Maggie Lally
The Adelphi University Department of Theatre has commissioned playwright (and Adelphi alum) Erin Mallon to write this new play for our talented students.
Several years in the future, an all-female astronaut team circumnavigates the globe once every 90 minutes aboard the International Space Station, prepared to be a powerful presence in space. When a surprise set of “every day citizens” tags along for the ride, all protocol flies right out the proverbial… airlock.
After a lifetime of being kept down on the ground, what happens when these women finally rise up and see their lives – and their planet – from high above it all?
Pale Blue Dot(s) features special appearances by David Bowie, Elon Musk, and a 6-hole ocarina.
