The series continues Wednesday, March 11 with Kaleidoscope by Ray Bradbury, directed by Jennifer Hamilton.  Kaleidoscope is touted as is one of the world’s best known sci-fi stories: a contemplative tale of space-suited men a million miles from Earth.   Their rocket ship, hit by a meteor, suddenly splits open, leaving them floating in space with only a communicator link to fellow crew members.  Faced with this problem, Bradbury’s people contemplate their fate and philosophize about life and its purpose.

In 1996, Bradbury reportedly told Playboy Magazine, “At one time, I had planned to have my ashes put into a Campbell’s tomato soup can and then have it planted on Mars.”  What more perfect “delight” could be created than tomato soup spiced cake?

This play reading theatre is performed as a one-act.  There will be a talk-back with the director, crew and actors after dessert.
