Synopsis: On the night of a catastrophic celestial event, two employees of the Starlight All Night Diner and their scientist friends struggle to figure out their future, their present, and their past. Like, the far past. Like, dinosaur times.

“Always Plenty of Light at the Starlight All Night Diner” is a one-act play about queer romance, time travel, and science.

Roles: Sam – F – 30s Overnight janitor at the Starlight Diner. Lives in a truck. Tough, masculine outside hides a softie inside. Totally in love with Jessa.

Jess – F – Late 20s-Early 30s Graveyard shift waitress. Very pregnant. Overworked and underappreciated. Confused about her relationship with her dopey husband.

Danni – F – Early 20s Graduate assistant. Knows everything dinosaurs and baseball – specifically the Arizona Diamondbacks. Admires Sam. Like, a lot.

Dr. Moxie – M – Old Eccentric weirdo! Adorable savant! Kooky Scientist! Super into space, time, continuums, etc. Also coffee and pie.

This play will be performed on Sunday, October 2nd, as part of the Paragon festival. Sorry, but there is no compensation.
