Drama critic picks “Mars: Population 1” as pieces of one-man Sci-Fi play land on YouTube

“Mars: Population 1,” a one-man science fiction play written, directed and performed by James Allerdyce, and which has a short run at The Players Loft in New York City until Saturday, August 29th, has received a “Critic’s Pick” review from Mitch Montgomery of Back Stage. “An interesting treatise on how our imaginative ideas about space travel affect our escapist culture,” here’s the promotional piece for the play:

Utter isolation. Limitless exploration. As he runs out of air, the first man to land on Mars comes fact to face with his own sanity, humanity, and space-madness, in this innovative sci-fi experience that will awe your imagination.

With a runtime of only 45 minutes, you can watch about 6 minutes of a performance of “Mars: Population 1” on YouTube (Part 1, Part 2).

“Mars: Population 1” is just one of many events at the 13th annual New York International Fringe Festival, which ends August 30, 2009.
