13th Street Repertory Company and Locked In The Attic Productions present an existential journey through the life of Peter Cooper, a hostile person struggling to find his way and make sense of his identity. More…
Falling out of grace with everyone around him, Peter plunges from shared housing to homelessness, seldom user to heroin junkie, and from punk rock drummer to pathetic, washed-up rock star destroyed by his ego. Comfort comes through a psychedelic journey to Pluto with Dwight, a chronic vagabond. It is the story of one man's search to find meaning.
"Irish-born author Seanie Sugrue has crafted an engrossing contemporary fable. Mr. Sugrue’s dialogue is witty and realistic and there are numerous funny one-liners...The sarcasm though never overpowers the play’s idealistic and optimistic core...Running two and a half hours with an intermission, 'One Way To Pluto!' drags at times as it is so crammed with incidents and observations...Mr. Sugrue has also solidly directed the play with theatrical flourishes."
