The world premiere of David Templeton’s award-winning science-fiction mystery.

Sept. 3-19, 2021

It’s 2167, and high above the Earth orbits a vast transport where robot-specialist Dr. Margaret Mailer conducts sessions with 71, a member of a synthetic support crew once assigned to the deep space research vessel, Galatea. A hundred years ago, the ship disappeared with more than a thousand human passengers on board. Now rescued from an ancient escape shuttle after years of floating in deep cryogenic sleep, 71 engages with Dr. Mailer in a series of therapy sessions and exercises designed to probe her memory and bring her “human” qualities up-to-date.

As she learns what it means to shake hands, make friends, tell jokes and laugh, it becomes clear that 71 is guarding more than a few secrets. Meanwhile, Mailer seeks the answers to a number of questions with vital, world-altering import including what, exactly, happened on the Galatea?

Directed by Marty Pistone
