Defenders of Gravity

Thursday, April 12, 2007 to Friday, April 27, 2007

Defenders of Gravity is a new play written by Jeff Pearce and directed by Tom McHale. The play is a comedy-drama about a group of science fiction writers in New York in 1955. On a long weekend in the summer, the whole gang – Walter, Jack, Rachel, Fred, Benny and his new girl, Teresa – get together to write, talk, drink, flirt and think big. Their heads may often be up in the clouds, but they all have problems that will bring them crashing down to Earth.

Defenders of Gravity is a love letter to science fiction – minus aliens, spaceships, and atomic mushroom clouds. The play will open the new Playwrights of Spring Festival being produced by Theatre Aurora and Shadowpath Theatre Productions.
