DramaDogs proudly presents award-winning writer and director Jane Anderson’s Defying Gravity, a clever and uplifting one-act fantasy play about space travel, spirituality and the Challenger disaster for one weekend only. According to the N.Y. Daily News, Defying Gravity.... “floats gracefully in the big blue yonder of the imagination .”
This freely structured look at the 1986 Challenger disaster artfully interweaves the past with the present and the lives of participants and bystanders, drawing parallels among painter Claude Monet's artistic quest, the zest of the teacher selected to the first civilian astronaut, the perspectives of her grieving daughter, the aspirations of elderly tourists who drive their Winnebago to Florida to watch the space shot and dream of hotels in space, the guilt felt by a NASA mechanic and his girlfriend's fear of heights.
