Launch Day

by Michael Higgins (Writer's Studio)

Directed by Georgette Verdin, Co-Artistic Director, Interrobang Theatre

Weary of our corrupt and dying planet, a brilliant young engineer is blasting off today on a mission to colonize another world. Her ex-boyfriend believes the Earth – and their relationship – can be saved. But first he must convince her to stay – and hope his new robotic arm doesn’t ruin everything. Six couples wrestle with the future of love in Launch Day, a comedy about where we’re headed.

Featuring: Vincent Teninty*Penelope Walker*Joseph Wiens*, Matthew NerberLaura Berner Taylor, Sara Pavlak McGuireCaren Blackmore*, Tracey Green

About the Saturday Series

Every Saturday afternoon at 2:00 PM (except for holiday weekends), Chicago Dramatists hosts a Saturday Series event in our theatre. Most Saturday Series events are public readings of plays-in-progress.

All plays read in the Saturday Series are directed, rehearsed, and presented with minimal staging. After each reading, the audience members are invited to fill out written response sheets and to join in a moderated post-reading discussion.

We hope you will join us for this Saturday Series event!
