One Small Step

School Matinee

NOTE: This details the school matinee performances of One Small Step.

Oxford Playhouse
Written by David Hastings

The “space race” between the United States and the Soviet Union to send the first man to the moon captured the world’s imagination and attention. Experience the 20th century’s most epic adventure in One Small Step, the smash hit from Oxford Playhouse in England. This action-packed tale includes dozens of characters—from German scientists, Russian cosmonauts and American astronauts (including plenty of Purdue’s own) to JFK and Walter Cronkite—all played by two extraordinary actors. Surrounded by vintage electronics and flea-market finds, they deliver inventive visual theatre as comically low-tech as Apollo 11 was high-tech—all while celebrating mankind’s unbridled creativity. Check your oxygen, adjust your space suit and buckle up for the biggest mission of all time!

Purdue Convocations is pleased to welcome back Oxford Playhouse after its successful run of One Small Step in October 2010!
