Play 5: Journey Through Space

Play 5, "Celestial Walkabout", is a poignant display of the sacrifices you'll make for your family. In 2163, a girl takes a tour of all the planets to Pluto on her 13th birthday - it's a traditional Jewish custom, her parents inform her - unaware of the real reason they've sent her on the trip.
Meg McLynn, Jim Jewell, Steven G. Sterne, and Heather Gautschi receive notes from director Maria Glanz.

Jim Jewell cuts an imposing figure.
Though it is really moving, there are definitely moments of levity (and also a huge prop spaceship). Choice quote: "We would like to present you with a beautiful Martian succulent." "Jimmy grows them in his greenhouse."
