The Search for Intelligent Signs of Life in the Universe

Earle Ernst Lab Theatre

January 26-27


This whimsical comedy features 13 vastly different characters whose stories interweave, most central of whom is the bag lady, Trudy. She proudly calls herself “crazy” and spends most of her time hanging out with her “space chums,” alien visitors from outer space who she assists in their study of earth. Trudy is the audience’s tour guide, taking them through the story and transporting them with her all-powerful umbrella hat from character to character, sharing insights and wise cracks along the way. Other characters include Agnus Angst, an angrily misunderstood teenage performance artist, Kate, a woman whose wealth have led her to be so bored by life that she suffers from “affluenza,” and Lyn, Edie, and Marge, college friends, feminists, and political activists whose ideals are tested as their lives change. As the story unfolds, connections between characters are revealed and the play draws attention to its central aim: to remind us about the importance, and fragility, of human connection.
