Pale Blue Dot(s)

Written by Erin Mallon ’02
Direction by Maggie Lally

The Adelphi University Department of Theatre has commissioned playwright (and Adelphi alum) Erin Mallon ’02 to write this new play for our talented students.

Several years in the future, an all-female astronaut team circumnavigates the globe once every 90 minutes aboard the International Space Station, prepared to be a powerful presence in space. When a surprise set of “every day citizens” tags along for the ride, all protocol flies right out the proverbial… airlock.

After a lifetime of being kept down on the ground, what happens when these women finally rise up and see their lives – and their planet – from high above it all?

Pale Blue Dot(s) features special appearances by David Bowie, Elon Musk and a 6-hole ocarina.

Coronavirus Update: As New York is on a "pause" for social distancing purposes, all in-person events for the next several weeks have been converted to online, postponed or canceled. Please check this page as information will be updated as possible—and call ahead before any upcoming in-person events until further notice. Thanks.
