"Space Base" is a 45 minute play originally written for a middle school drama performance, but is suitable for a middle school or high school drama class.
This play is based on cheesy sci-fi TV shows from the past, including equally cheesy commercials, and set on a space station that is hurtling out of control through the cosmos.
While performing maintenance on their base, the crew receives an alien distress call from a race of flower-people from Botan IV. Moments later, another group of aliens boards the base to talk with the crew. Which aliens can be trusted? How will the crew get out of this sticky situation?
The cast includes 42 speaking parts that could be doubled up for a smaller group.
