On Stars Not Falling

Theater For Thought 2018

On Stars Not Falling is a nonmusical that tells the story of college friends who dropped out of school following a shared, traumatic experience. Five months later, they gather for a birthday party on the rooftop of a Chicago three-flat. An unexpected guest who transforms their lives forever interrupts the celebration. This 90-minute play empowers those who feel small, offers faith to those who feel lost, and ultimately awakens the courage in us all to stand-up, move forward, and claim our own happiness. This dramatic script deals with mature themes and is recommended for audience and actors who are 16 years or older. For more information, please contact Jessi Hersman at 847.850.2152.
