Synopsis: 
Crisis on Planet Z! is an environmental, science-fiction play for young audiences. Zephyr and their alien species the Alphabetians are celebrating 100 years of being on Planet Z when Zephyr makes a new friend and a horrifying discovery: a fuzzy Ziffle shows them how Alphabetians haven’t been ‘improving’ the planet, they have been slowly destroying it! Together, the Ziffle and Zephyr try to warn the Alphabetians, but it’s too late! The rockets are packed, and the aliens are ready to blast off to the next planet. Little do they know, there is no next planet: Planet Z is the very last planet in their solar system! Together, the Alphabetians must account for their actions, learn how to pronounce symbiosis, and find a way to save Planet Z.

ABOUT MONSTER THEATRE: Monster Theatre creates original plays that challenge preconceptions, excite imaginations and embody the way of the Monster: strange, twisted and bizarre on the outside, but always with a noble heart. Our process puts story first by adapting universal stories to make them relevant for our specific time and place in the world, or re-imagining history with impeccable research and utter irreverence. Our unique brand of theatre applies the philosophy and techniques of improvisation during both the creation process and in performance, the results are fast-paced, physical, loose, cerebral and often, but not always, comedic.

Character 1 Name: 
Gloucester
Character 1 Age: 
40+
Character 1 Description: 
A nobleman loyal to King Lear whose rank, earl, is below that of duke. The first thing we learn about Gloucester is that he is an adulterer, having fathered a bastard son, Edmund. His fate is in many ways parallel to that of Lear: he misjudges which of his children to trust. He appears weak and ineffectual in the early acts, when he is unable to prevent Lear from being turned out of his own house, but he later demonstrates that he is also capable of great bravery.

Synopsis: 
Roland and Marianne meet at a barbecue and become romantically involved. After they've moved in together, a confession of infidelity causes them to break up. After some time, they run in to each other at a ballroom dancing class, resume their relationship, and eventually marry. Marianne begins to forget words and has trouble typing. She is told by her doctor that she has a tumor in her frontal lobe and has less than a year to live. She eventually seeks assisted suicide abroad with Roland's support. The play ends with a flashback to the scene where Roland and Marianne rekindle their relationship in the dance class. The play skips though different times in their relationships and shows them in alternate universes with different outcomes.
