Cannibal Galaxy: a love story
Charise’s play, “Cannibal Galaxy: a love story” received its world premiere at The New Ohio Theater
in NYC on June 8 – 17, 2018.
Produced by the all female-run company, Between Two Boroughs and directed by Jenn Haltmann, the play was an EST Sloan Finalist, it was workshopped by Fault Line Theatre, and it received prior production at Xavier College.
It’s business as usual at the Washington D.C. Science Museum where the employees’ personal lives keep getting in the way. Jo wants a child but is unable to secure an inseminator. Chet longs to make love, but dating kinda sucks and gaming is way more awesome. Claire searches for purpose by digging directly toward the center of the earth. Vadim prioritizes the needs of others but wouldn’t know his own if they crawled into bed with him. Eloise lives in a treehouse and brushes her teeth with space particles. When chaos ravages a perfectly average day, these co-workers are flung into a cosmic galactic shift, rearranging their internal cartography. “CANNIBAL GALAXY: a love story” is a new play about how we keep breathing as America eats itself alive.
[This] production...is a discourse on our own hunger – for connection, for belonging, for filling the empty space within. Cannibal Galaxy: a love story operates like the Mars Rover collecting data about the surface of things and hinting at the caverns and mysteries that lie undiscovered beneath.” — Jacquelyn Claire, Stage Biz

Listen in as Cannibal Galaxy: a love story playwright Charise Greene, along with the duo behind the producing company Between Two Boroughs—the show’s director, Jenn Haltman, and Becca Schneider, who plays “Claire”—discuss impossibility in the theater, finding communal experiences in the wake of trauma, “the relationship between violence, science, and spirituality in our country,” embracing the structural elements of a space, galactic cannibalism, magical realism, irrevocable change, and where creativity and violence collide.
Produced at Xavier University in September 2017
Charise Greene's] entire play is modernly elegant. And I’ve never attended a talkback where there were such deep and thoughtful responses to the symbolism of a play. Of course, I’ve not seen many plays that use symbolism this well. - The Sappy Critic
