About this show

Taking a cue from the space industry, Jay Scheib's latest work pits hard Science against Philip K. Dick as interplanetary speculation runs amok, the indigenous population gets screwed, and a strange "anomalous" kid seems to hold all the answers. Developed at MIT with a team of Mars researchers and anthropologists, a mission to colonize the Red Planet is revving up for 2017. Imagining what might happen once we get there, Scheib drops seven performers into a simulated Martian society. Can't make ends meet on Earth? Consider a one-way ticket to Mars! Untitled Mars (This Title May Change) is made possible through the generous support of Ensemble Studio Theater/ Sloan; The Trust for Mutual Understanding; Hungarian Cultural Center; Deutsch-Ungarische Industrie und Handelskammer; Swing Space, a program of Lower Manhattan Cultural Council, generously supported by the September 11th Fund--project space donated by Capstone Equities; with special thanks to the Mars Society, and Massachusetts Institute of Technology School of Humanities Arts and Social Sciences.
