WE READ BOOKS is a short play series from InVersion Theatre celebrating the untamed, uncooperative and unapologetic aspects of adaptation. Come see six short shows that all use a pre-existing text as a jumping off point for plays that refuse to play by the rules. The only catch?

The Astronaut School has four students - but only one can actually make it to outer space. Who has what it takes? Does anyone even know what it takes? Following the experiences of Daria, an intense, focused student; Claire, a woman struggling to fully realize her own ambitions; Paul, a hobbyist; and Tom, a straight white American man; OR, AN ASTRONAUT PLAY explores who gets access to the space they want to enter, why, and what’s left for the rest of us.

InVersion and the Tank present Johnny Lloyd’s fantastic OR, AN ASTRONAUT PLAY. Stay tuned to InVersion’s site for details!
