This is a rare opportunity to enjoy this intimate play in this intimate setting.
JPR OMNI New York welcomes your support of The Philipstown Depot Theatre at this one night only reading August 11th of the forthcoming Off-Broadway Production of Jerome Bixby's The Man from Earth.
After history professor John Oldman unexpectedly resigns from the University, his startled colleagues impulsively invite themselves to his home, pressing him for an explanation. But they're shocked to hear his reason for premature retirement: John claims he must move on because he is immortal, and cannot stay in one place for more than ten years without his secret being discovered. Tempers rise and emotions flow as John's fellow professors attempt to poke holes in his story, but it soon becomes clear that his tale is as impossible to disprove as it is to verify. What starts out as a friendly gathering soon builds to an unexpected and shattering climax.
Acclaimed science fiction writer Jerome Bixby, writer of the original 'Star Trek' and 'The Twilight Zone', originally conceived this story back in the early 1960's.
The Man from Earth would come to be his last great work on his death bed in 1998.
