A NATIONAL NEW PLAY NETWORK WORLD PREMIERE
Mandell Studio Theater | By Steve Yockey
Directed by Mark Routhier
Pluto receives its Rolling World Premiere at Actor's Express (Atlanta, GA) and
Forum Theatre (Silver Spring, MD), before premiering at Orlando Shakes.
Here's what critics are saying:
"[Yockey] weaves in mythology, a ghost story, and a haunting tale of a mother’s love into this 80-minute drama that never loses its quick-pace and high intensity... this powerful world premiere production mwill not leave anyone untouched." - Kenny Norton, Atlanta Theater Fans
"Pluto impressively finds the right balance of dysfunctional family drama, dark comedy, and rich metaphor..." - Kurt Holman, CL Atlanta
"Yockey takes us to queasy, uncomfortable, and highly complex emotional places... an American tragedy as important as it is disturbing." - Wendell Brock, The Atlanta Journal Constitution
"Imbuing his ripped-from-the-headlines material with the horrific impulse of Tracy Letts and Martin McDonagh — with a dash of Tony Kushner’s hushed and prophetic intelligence — Yockey delivers an American tragedy as important as it is disturbing."
- The Atlanta Journal Constitution
"People do all kinds of things."
Single mother Elizabeth Miller is having a bad day. A tree has crashed through the ceiling, the fridge is on the fritz, a forceful crowd threatens to invade her family's kitchen -- and then there's the odd new family pet! At the center of this chaos, time stands still as mother and son jump-start their relationship and try to confront reality together across the breakfast table.
