Our Place in Space
A new play by Alicia Chaisson
Earth is in danger and three scientists are our only hope! This live-action sci-fi show will follow our three heroes as they attempt to find a control planet that may hold the key for preserving Earth. Through humor, ambition, wonder, boredom, and ethical dilemmas, we’ll see humanity’s relationship to outer space.
This project is supported in part by ArtSpark, an Individual Artist stipend supported by the Lafayette Economic Development Authority and administered by the Acadiana Center for the Arts.
Doors Open at 7:00 pm
