    This year we held our first ever fundraiser!  The evening was hosted at Sek’end Sun.  There was lots of fun and lots of raffle prizes awarded.

    And because we are crazy, we decided to hold another Launch Pad reading barely two weeks after our fundraiser! Our final reading for 2015 was Jonathan Alexandratos’ new play DUCK

    November also kept us busy with a second reading of LILY IN LOVE, hosted by the New American Voices reading series at Queens Theatre.

    We closed out the year with a holiday party for our Propulsion Lab playwrights!

    Mission to (dit)Mars was created by four people who love Queens and it has been sustained throughout the year by all of you.  Thank you so much for making 2015 such a productive and artistically rewarding year for us.  We couldn’t have done it without you!  We’ve managed to accomplish all of this with very little money.  If you’d like to support us, click here to find out the best way to do so!
    Afterparty at Se'kend Sun
    Happy New Year and see you in Queens in 2016!
