The New Play Project Presents: Spacecano, Episode One: Countdown to Immopact!

The WMU New Play Project presents the first half-hour episode of its live, weekly, fully-staged serial, as written, developed and performed by the company, Thursday, June 2nd at 9 PM in the York Arena Theatre.

In episode one (of six), a Spacecano (more than a meteoroid, it's also a volcano) is hurtling toward earth at a seemingly unstoppable rate.

Is this the real end of the world?

Or will Dr. Trixie Knifefight and her crack team of sexy super scientists save us all?

Spacecano, Episode One: Countdown to Immopact! is based on a story by Justin Gibson, developed by the New Play Project Company and written by Justin Gibson, Mikala Hansen, Kelsey Pretzer, Drew Ruby, Amanda Fora and Ben Ng Kim Long.

Now in its eighth summer, the Western Michigan University New Play Project, a collaboration between WMU's English and Theatre Departments, has developed new plays by WMU English Department playwrights, with a company of actors and directors from the Theatre Department. The course is team taught by professors Steve Feffer (English) and Mark Liermann (Theatre).
