"I enjoyed directing Susan Steadman's piece Much, Much Later. It is a fun, quirky piece that allowed me as a director some leeway to play with it. The audience enjoyed the performances and had nothing but good things to report. I would direct it again in a heartbeat." — Jason Caldwell, Artistic Director, Lionheart Theatre (Norcross, GA)
In the future, all that's left of humans on earth is our abandoned "stuff." When three extraterrestrials on a fact-finding mission explore a suburban backyard, what conclusions will they draw from such artifacts as a garden hose, skewers and a charcoal grill? As discord creeps in and their mission teeters on the brink of failure, could their last, best hope be a Barbie doll?
