"Satellites" will make its world premiere this July at the aptly named Premiere Stages at Kean University. Having previously won the 2022 Premiere Play Festival, the show penned by Erin Breznitsky will celebrate its first full stage production under the direction of Premiere Stages' Artistic Director, John J. Wooten.
"Satellites" orbits around married couple Katherine & Mike who are each on a mission to save the world. She's a scientist studying climate change; he's an astronaut exploring the unknown. When Mike's shuttle vanishes in outer space, Katherine forges ahead alone, raising their children and continuing her life's work until Mike suddenly reappears without explanation. As the couple struggles to adjust to his strange return, they're forced to reexamine their entire relationship—while also facing an uncertain future.
Jersey Arts speaks with playwright Erin Breznitsky and director John J. Wooten on their first day of rehearsal.
"Satellites" runs from July 13-30 in the Bauer Boucher Theatre Center on the Kean University campus (1000 Morris Avenue) in Union, New Jersey. Click here for more information on the show or to purchase tickets.
