The Stanford Calderwood Pavilion at the Boston Center for the Arts
Set 800 years in the future, Citizens of the Empire is a space opera with noblemen turned revolutionaries, union organizing robots, inter-galactic garbagemen, and a madam of a space brothel. Against a backdrop of Imperial balls, space stations, and border planets, a plucky band of rebels risk everything to take on an Empire and change the course of the galaxy forever.

Meet The Playwright
All of my plays are based in genre. I write big science fiction plays for the stage. My plays are filled with abolitionist suicide bombers in an alternate version of 1920’s America, or post-apocalyptic climate refuges who carry AK-47’s, or union organizing robots 800 years in the future who plot to overthrow humanity. I don’t want to write 90-minute intermission-less plays about white middle-class people and their problems. I’m interested in telling stories that are epic in nature.
Tickets for Citizens of the Empire are available through Boston Theater Scene (617-933-8600). And at the box office at the Calderwood Pavilion at the Boston Center for the Arts.
