AUDITION NOTICE—Monday and Tuesday!!!
By Steven Dietz
Produced by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc.
Directed by Tyler Burden
TIME: Present day. And then another one.
PLACE: The attic of an American home.
THE STORY: ROCKET MAN is a serious comedy about the road not taken. Donny Rowan has placed everything he owns on his front lawn, along with a sign that reads: “Here’s my life. Make an offer.” He has cut a skylight into his attic and placed his E-Z Boy recliner underneath—where he can sit, staring at the stars. Somewhere in the universe, Donny believes, is a place where all the roads we never chose converge. ROCKET MAN explores one man’s obsessive desire to find this “parallel world” —and the profound effect of his decision on his family and friends.
