Paradigm Lab presents Jerome Bixby’s THE MAN FROM EARTH
John Oldman, a history professor, reveals to a small group of friends and colleagues his biggest secret for the first time in his life. Set during his goodbye party, the play revolves around this single, unbelievable idea, weaving John’s story through a line of intense questioning brought by his peers over the course of the evening.
THE MAN FROM EARTH is an electric blend of sci fi and realism, that asks more questions than it can answer.
