THE LAST SHIP TO PROXIMA CENTAURI (2021)
PLAYWRIGHT Greg Lam
DIRECTOR Sally Wood
The Earth has become uninhabitable. The last escape ship from Earth (Seattle, to be exact) arrives at its new home centuries after all the others. The pilots are not prepared for what they find there: A planet full of unimpressed people of color who are not happy to see them.
The Last Ship to Proxima Centauri asks us to examine 21st Century America through the lens of futurist neo-colonialism, 2000 years after the end of Must-See TV.
Greg Lam is a playwright, screenwriter, and board game designer who is a transplanted Bostonian now living in the Bay Area. He is the co-creator of the “Boston Podcast Players” podcast (bostonpodcastplayers.com) Boston’s virtual podcast stage for new works by local playwrights.
