>> About the PlayTHE LAST SHIP TO PROXIMA CENTAURIby Greg Lamdirected by Pascale Florestaldramaturgy by Ilana M. Brownstein
The world has become uninhabitable. The last escape ship from Earth arrives at their new home centuries after all the others, but they are not prepared for what they find there. Greg Lam's THE LAST SHIP TO PROXIMA CENTAURI asks us to examine 21st Century America through the lens of futurist neo-colonialism, 2500 years after "Friends" is finally off the air for good.
