Synopsis: Meet the film team responsible for staging the Apollo 11 moon landing. Or at least, partially responsible—until their lead actor Neil was whisked away at the last minute when NASA decided to go in a different direction. Now, director Sylvia and her crew are being held prisoner in a classified warehouse in the middle of nowhere America, with nothing to do but make a documentary about their thwarted attempt at creating the footage that would inspire the world. Craters is an exercise in fact-finding, (re)enactment, and the power of simulation.
Craters is being presented at Pete’s Candy Story in Brooklyn as part of their Play Date Series which gives audiences an early taste of new dramatic works on the third Monday of every month.
Director: Deby Xiadani
Playwright: Elise Wien
