Science Fictions

REMINDER! This week's Instant Theater is on SATURDAY! That's right, we've hit primetime!

As much as I try to hide it, the fact that I'm a sci-fi geek keeps making itself apparent. In honor of the reboot of the Star Trek franchise, this week's theme is Science Fictions.

Yes, that "s" on the end is on purpose. Because we're not only talking futuristic science fiction here. We're also hoping our writers will explore some of the great historical fictions of science. In addition to phasers and teleporters, we'll also see pieces about leeches, phrenology and razor-blade-sharpening pyramids.

As always, we'll have a unannounced theatrical challenge for the writers. Are you a savvy enough theatre connoisseur to suss out the secret?

REMEMBER: it's a FREE hour of theatre- that's right- NO charge!
