Out of Orbit

Character Breakdown: 2M, 3F

Running Time: 2 hours with intermission

Genre: Drama

A mother and her teenage daughter. The Jet Propulsion Lab Scientist and the underachiever. Sara lives on Mars time, spearheading the Mars Rover Expedition, visiting a planet she cannot touch, while her daughter, Lis, on earth time, falls under the spell of the cyber-cypher Edgar2330. Sometimes it takes being worlds apart for an exploring woman and a longing-to-be-explored girl to find each other in our increasingly disconnected universe.

 

Set/Technical: A unit set that can easily transform from Sara and Lis's house, to their car, to the locker room, to the lab, to Mars, with simple set pieces that won't interrupt the flow
