A small breach in protocol at Big Rick's Rockin' Skydive Academy

In the 60 seconds between jumping out of an airplane and deploying their parachutes, when their bodies are plummeting to the earth at a rate of 120 miles-per-hour, four people have much to think about their lives and how those lives will be forever changed when—or, if—they get their feet back on the ground.

    The title alone hooked me, and then the play itself wouldn't let me go. It's a great mix of absurdity because of the situation the characters are in and comedy with a dollop of heartache and facing mortality as well. It would be such a fun show to put on!

    This brilliant play, which I saw twice at the 2019 Samuel French Off-Off Broadway Play Festival, explores the gamut of emotions experienced by four characters on a tandem skydive. Each character reacts with varying levels of dread and exhilaration, based upon what they know and how they approach life. The characters, because of the sensory deprivation provided by the situation, are together yet alone. And there is a profound emotional impact at the core of this play. It is also completely hilarious. Hirsch is excellent at hooking his audience with laughter, then hitting them with existential dread. I loved it.

    A clever short play that would be fun for both actors and audience.
