A Sci-Fi Psychological Comedy by
1W / 1M
Approximate Playing Time: 75 minutes

On the planet Mars, a soldier fighting a war against the Long Haulers, an invading alien species, describes how Captain L-rac Nagas, daring spacefarer, stood on a cliff overlooking the battlefield to show the enemy what he was made of: Human. Scientist. Survivor. Warrior. Man. Moments later, Dr. Lawrence B. Tooney removes his motorcycle helmet and speaks into a recorder. He recounts his latest therapy session with Dr. Katharine Wriggley, a noted scientist working for the Pike’s Peak National Laboratory. Dr. Wriggley is dealing with the fallout caused by an unscrupulous colleague who exposed her private journals. Because the journals outline her future-life and adventures on Mars, the laboratory is convinced she may be mentally unstable and therefore a national security risk. Her home and personal computer files invaded, she feels emotionally violated and intellectually raped. She is forced to relinquish all scientific duties and submit to a series of psychological evaluations under the auspices of Dr. Tooney. But as Dr. Wriggley’s future-life experiences increase and his study of her journals intensifies, Toooney starts to have doubts. When he joins Wriggley’s future-self and Captain L-rac on a number of adventures on Mars, his concept of reality unravels, convincing him the experiences are real, and not only that, fun, like an Edgar Rice Burroughs science fiction adventure novel. Persuaded by the evidence, Dr. Tooney informs Dr. Wriggley he intends to publish their findings in scientific journals, at which point Dr. Wriggley confesses she started writing the journals when she was a child, after watching a documentary called Cosmos hosted by the famous scientist Carl Sagan; L-rac Nagas in reverse. $20 Single Use Copyright Fee plus $60 Royalty per Performance for Amateur Theatre.
