These are not the pilgrims found in Thanksgiving lore. In this sci-fi drama, playwright Claire Kiechel quarantines a teenage girl and a soldier in close quarters on a spacecraft headed to a newly discovered planet. The complex characters reflect America's own journey and the predicament of perhaps never changing and moving on from our country's past. The 90-minute reading, directed by Alley Resident Assistant Director Brandon Weinbrenner and including Alley Resident Company members Melissa Pritchett and Jay Sullivan as well as Houston actor Melissa Molano, will be followed by a post-performance conversation with Kiechel led by Elizabeth Frankel. Reservations are recommended.
