“One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.” Such lofty worlds catapulted those intrepid early space explorers to legendary status. But in Darkside we see astronaut Bill Griffin helplessly orbiting while his two comrades are stranded in the lunar landing module. As ground control struggles to rescue the men, their individual stories play out revealing them every bit as human as they are heroic. The Hawes Studio Theatre is the perfect setting for this epic, yet intimate play of frailty and loneliness.
