Speed of Light – A Science Fiction Play

On the planet of Nerth, physicist Mayra Ecazin races against time to unlock the secret of light speed travel while a hoarde of alien invaders threaten to decimate life on the planet. However, getting the machine made proves more difficult than anticipated. Battling greedy investors, competing agendas, and her own mortality, how much is Mayra willing to sacrifice to make her machine?

Speed of Light takes a fantastical look at the infinite possibilities of the human mind and the finite potential of a flawed civilization.
