Award-winning playwright Duncan Pflaster (Prince Trevor Amongst The Elephants) returns to the Midtown International Theatre Festival with another classic-bender fantasy, a mashup of Chekhovian comedy and science fiction.

The year is 3047. A diplomatic mission brings a professor, his lovely alien wife and his faithful doctor aboard The Starship Astrov, where unspoken love and misunderstandings abound between the ship’s crew and guests. Asking the question, will humanity stay the same, or will the future change us?

Featuring Walter Brandes*, Elizabeth A. Davis*, Philip Emeott, Ariel Estrada*, Jennifer Gawlik*, Rafael Jordan* and Christine Verleny.

Mark Richard Caswell is the costume designer, Isabella F. Byrd is the lighting designer, and Nick Moore is the sound designer. Jenna Lazar is the production stage manager, and Jaime Carrillo is the assistant director.
