Echo Theatre presents Brides of the Moon
Brides of the Moon, Echo Theatre’s LGBT Pride Month play, is full of fast-changes and quicker quips as a five-woman company plays nine characters that switch at a rocket’s pace between earth and the heavens. In this cautionary comedy set in the far, but impending future, an all-woman team of astronauts is launched into space to join an all-male crew who have been “…transforming the galaxy’s most desolate wastelands into the hugest most luxurious vacation spot ever!”
With a mission to procreate and develop a human community, they have a run-in with some floating space trash. When their pre-wired sex urges kick in, their broken ship becomes the love boat to Lesbos. Back on Earth, it’s 2069 in Stinkle, Ohio and their only hope for survival may be an odd housewife with a broken microwave and a broken family.
