My short comedy will lead off an evening of ten-minute plays produced by Wily West Productions and The Playwrights Center of San Francisco in “Sheherezade,” May 11-26 at Stagewerx in San Francisco. In “Mission: Irresistible,” the latest Russian Mars probe has broken up. NASA administrators Wanda and Bill have broken up, too. Can a Russian astrophysicist make an emergency repair? As my partner David has pointed out, I often write about characters who may be typed as “science girlz,” and this is an example.
Critic Annette Lust wrote: “Mission Irresistible by Patricia Milton, directed by Ann Thomas, develops a Russian delegate’s (Diana Brown as the dynamically convincing Russian female) attempts to seduce two of Nasas’ serious minded astronaut representatives (Lila Tavelli and Wesley Cayabyab) into partnering with Russia.”
The Pacifica Sun wrote: “Mission Irresistible” by Patricia Milton makes a humorous blend of the space program, Russian diplomatic relations, and a NASA office romance gone bad.
