Photos from “Demoting Pluto” in New Mexico
My one-act DEMOTING PLUTO was produced in November at the Explora Science Center and Children’s Museum in Albuquerque, New Mexico as part of a festival of short plays about science.
A fast-paced commentary on modern-day attack ads in politics, and the public’s lack of scientific knowledge. A political consultant and an astronomy professor team up to wage a media campaign aimed at reclassifying Pluto from a planet to something less than a planet. A comedy, with a sharp point. Includes
audience participation, and two alternate endings, depending on the outcome.
Cast: Six — 4 males, 2 females. Running time: 30 minutes.
Kristina Caffrey and Victoria Sullivan as newscasters reviewing election returns. Check out the fancy fake knobs on the TV.
JJ Suffron, who played the political consultant, and Neil Fauloconbridge who portrayed Prof. Thompson.
Almost the entire cast.
Victoria Sullivan, Ninette S. Mordaunt, Kris Montoya, and Kristina Caffrey.
