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.
