"In the midst of nuclear confusion and doomsday predictions, the conservationists, the cultists, and even the transcendental mystics are out in force."
March 12-16, 19-23 at the Black Hole Theatre
We're closing out our season with the world premiere of Robert Smith's The Pluto Shot. Inspired by Aristophanes, The Pluto Shot is an hilarious exposé about the politics of science which boldly forecasts a change in the... weather?
Set in northern California in the early 1960's, in the midst of the cold war. The McCarthy era is just ending, Hitchcock is set to shoot The Birds, the population of San Francisco Bay is about to "explode" and scientists are developing the ultimate deterrent.
Will San Francisco survive this snafu? Will the world crumble apart? Amid panicked hearsay and speculation, it is no surprise that alien abduction seems a genuine hope.
Playwright Robert Smith developed this play as part of the latest New Play Development project cycle in the Theatre Program in the Department of English, Film, and Theatre at the at the University of Manitoba.
