About this show

Vladimir's Pocket Productions presents Moonchild at the New York International Fringe Festival. Heather Tom stars in this dark farce that investigates the early career of Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard and his scam with a Black Magic sex cult. Written by Maureen FitzGerald and directed by Alex Lippard, the show is based on actual events, and examines the relationship between a young, broke and struggling L. Ron Hubbard and the brilliant, half-crazed rocket scientist Jack Parsons, a Satanist and disciple of the infamous Aleister Crowley. Playwright Maureen FitzGerald speculates on how a meeting between two of the twentieth century's most controversial figures led to the birth of a multi-million dollar empire.
