Starship MacGuffin!

INTERACTIVE COMEDY/MYSTERY. A dire mystery is afoot on board the spaceship “Stargazer,” and time is running out! While crew members are busy rehearsing for their virtual production of "Fish Hamlet on Mars," Captain Harkness discovers that the spaceship’s power source, the MacGuffin, has been stolen. With just 30 minutes of oxygen left, the intrepid crew calls upon the audience to help find the culprit before they crash land on the lost planet of D’Illyria and are stranded with no hope of returning to Earth. Suspects include the queen of intergalactic disguise, a nerdy cook/translator, Ensign Redshirt, and a drama-loving D’Illyrian. And let’s not forget the robot in the room! Audiences will love this interactive, choose-your-own-ending play. “Starship MacGuffin!” is a hilarious send-up of “Star Trek,” "Return to the Forbidden Planet," and "The Maltese Falcon." May be performed virtually or in person. Perfect for Zoom productions. Easy to stage.
