You are invited to overhear confidential conversations during the last days of a galactic empire, as conflict over precious resources brings war, betrayal, and the choice between future and catastrophe.

A play for listening and watching by Edward Mast, very like and very unlike the novel by Frank Herbert, directed as a performance reading by Robert Leigh.  

This full-length performance will not take place in a theater.  The audience will move through several locations and will use some stairs.  (We apologize for lack of wheelchair access to one of the locations.)  All the environments will be indoors and will have seating available.

This is not a public event, but an invitational performance.  No money will change hands in any direction.  No admission or donation will be requested. 

Because of the intimate nature of the event, audience size will be extremely limited.  ONLY A SMALL NUMBER OF PEOPLE WILL BE ABLE TO SEE THIS PLAY.  If you'd like to be one of them, call or email and make a reservation right away.


adapted by Edward Mast

from the novel by Frank Herbert

Directed by Robert Leigh
