Author Michael Friedman and local players perform six short scenes from his hilarious 2006 cult novel Martian Dawn and two equally off-kilter new works, Are We Done Here? and On My Way to See You. This trio of short novels tackles stardom, science fiction, movies, love affairs, twins, French people, writing colonies, parenting, missionaries, murder, and more! The settings for the “playlets” include an art gallery, a space station, an Amazon village, a doctor’s office, and the Minneapolis landmark Nye’s Polonaise Room. Join us for a late night of literature made strange — you might wake up on Mars. Presented by Rain Taxi.
