A journey from outer space to inner peace

Donna Orbits the Moon

October 2 – 13, 2019
Wednesday – Sunday
All shows at 6:30PM

By Ian August
Directed by Claire Moyer
Performed by Sabrina Profitt
Upstairs at HeadHouse Cafe

Ordinarily, Donna is pretty grounded: a loving wife, a happy empty nester, and a celebrity on the local bake sale circuit. But lately she’s been a little out of control and folks are starting to notice. A little road rage. An innocent hurling of the vacuum cleaner. She even slapped a woman at the supermarket! Therapy is out of the question and church isn’t the place to share one’s tribulations. How can she retake control? Donna Orbits the Moon is a disarmingly funny, utterly surprising, and ultimately profound journey through motherhood, trauma, reclamation, the Mall of America, and maybe even a space walk with Buzz Aldrin.

As part of A Play, a Pie, and a Pint, every Donna Orbits the Moon ticket comes with a slice of pizza and a beverage: beer, wine, or soft drink.

Bring friends and reap the benefits! Purchase a group of 4 or 6 tickets for reserved premium seating at no extra charge.
