Gremlin Theatre
Opening in May! 

Rocket to the Moon
by Clifford Odets
Directed by Ellen Fenster
May 17 - June 1, 2014
Presented in partnership with the Hennepin Theatre Trust at the New Century Theatre in Minneapolis

Clifford Odets is one of the great American playwrights, a powerful and distinct voice who revolutionized American theatre through his work with the Group Theater in New York in the 1930s. Rocket to the Moon is Odets’ small cast powerhouse of a play. A dentist finds his business and marriage failing when he comes suddenly face to face with his first – and no doubt last – shot at real happiness, as a love affair with a young dental assistant threatens to develop over the course of a long, hot summer in New York, 1938. From this simple premise, Rocket to the Moon carves out an unusual story about lives at their crossroads and the desire to want more out of our very existence.

In partnership with the Hennepin Theatre Trust, Gremlin Theatre is re-introducing this great American playwright to Twin Cities audiences through Rocket to the Moon while reconfiguring the intimate setting of the New Century Theatre in Downtown Minneapolis.
