“Mr. Martin is peerless at crafting tiny wit bombs, and always has been […] It’s definitely funny!” – The New York Times
Corky and Norm are excited to host Gerald and Laura at their home in the valley outside Los Angeles to watch a once-in-a-lifetime meteor shower. But as the stars come out and the conversation gets rolling, it becomes clear that Gerald and Laura might not be all that they appear to be. Over the course of a crazy, starlit dinner party, the wildly unexpected occurs. The couples begin to flirt and insanity reigns. Martin, using his trademark absurdist humor, bends the fluid nature of time and reality to create a surprising and unforgettably funny new play.
Meteor Shower is directed by Jobsite Artistic Associate Paul J. Potenza (A Skull in Connemara, The Lonesome West) who leads the artistic team of Brian Smallheer (scenic design), Jo Averill-Snell (light design), Jeremy Douglass (Composer), and Katrina Stevenson (costume design). The show stars Jonelle Marie Meyer, Amy E. Gray, Jamie Jones, and Jordan Foote.
