When Skip Powers realizes that no one will ever love him, he volunteers to go to Mars — and the Principal of NASA says, “Yeah, sure. You’ll do.” Skip isn’t close to his family, hasn’t had ANY luck with dating, and isn’t interested in participating in the gene pool — making him the perfect candidate for NASA to send millions of miles on a solo mission to Mars from which he will never return. After disheartening experiences on gay hookup apps, he’s more than prepared for training with the Abstinence Coach — but a little less prepared when the Love of His Life tries to keep him on earth. Hilarious and heartfelt, this play about what it means to attempt to live your life in the pursuit of great things spans a million years and fifty-five million miles.
This production is supported in part by funding from the ScriptWorks Finer Point Fund for New Play Production. The Thursday, July 27th performance will be a benefit to help replenish the fund.
SMALL STEPS was originally a ten-minute play written during the Weekend Fling and first seen as part of OUT OF INK 2016: Carry On.
