The Sunrise from the Moon

Theater Arts in Caltech, directed by Brian Brophy, presented "The Sunrise from the Moon."

Synopsis:

Imagine future space missions with humans populating the lunar terrain. In Manikowski's play, NASA's first lunar colony Montgomery suffers a tragic collapse, but one human survives: Annaliese, a 25-year-old woman born on the Moon, with ten of those years spent alone. Following her discovery, Annaliese is rescued and returned to Earth, where — alongside her own pained search for identity — she is caught in the crosshairs of competing agendas between NASA investigators. Featuring an eclectic cast of characters and satisfying moments of surprise, this sleek drama is also a love story that probes the complexity of the human condition.
