From the creator of Making God Laugh, this world première brings audiences another stellar play filled with humor and heart.
Dr. Lynn Cummings, an astrophysicist, tries to bring science and faith into balance while grappling with personal questions, reconnecting with her daughter, and mourning the loss of her husband. When an unidentified object is discovered heading toward Earth, a less-than-reputable online magazine misquotes her, casting doubt on her credibility. The two-time Nobel Prize nominee and the ambitious journalist monitor the mysterious object. Dr. Cummings hopes to witness nothing remarkable and thus save her reputation, but there is no telling what she will discover beyond the stars.
Caution: Strobe and flashing lighting effects will be used during this performance. Patrons that may suffer from epilepsy & other visual light stimulation effects are advised to contact the Front of house staff prior to entering the theater.
Notes: A Rock Sails By is the fourth play by Sean Grennan to make its world première at Peninsula Players Theatre. Making God Laugh, The Tin Woman and Now and Then are all laced with Grennan’s fine craftsmanship that creates loveable, believable characters in humorous and very human moments. Patrons with specific content concerns should contact the Box Office with direct questions.
