Voyagers

**Actively in development**

A play by Danielle Mohlman from an original concept by Maureen Monterubio.

Once every 175 years, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune align in such a way that – with the help of the slingshot quality of gravity assist – a spacecraft can reach each of the outer planets. This is a play about that once in a lifetime moment.

**Actively in development**

A play by Danielle Mohlman from an original concept by Maureen Monterubio.

Once every 175 years, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune align in such a way that – with the help of the slingshot quality of gravity assist – a spacecraft can reach each of the outer planets. This is a play about that once in a lifetime moment.

Bobbie wants to retire, but after forty years at NASA it's difficult to walk away. Helen is watching her daughter find her footing at the space agency, all while starting a new career as a physics professor in the post-Space Shuttle era. Joanna is at the beginning of her career, falling in love with spacecrafts and astronauts through coding and stargazing. And Grace is navigating a new realm as both the commander of the International Space Station and the lone female on board.

As for Voyager 1 and Voyager 2, they’ve made a pact with Bobbie to share everything the human eye can’t comprehend, sending messages through the galaxy – all to the soundtrack of the Golden Records they carry and the siren call of the planet Saturn.
