Snuff Box Theatre presents

April 23rd, 1967.
The Space Race is almost over. The USSR has all but lost. The launch of Soyuz, untested and behind schedule, is a final effort to stay in the running. Three friends, thousands of miles apart, must grapple with a flawed machine in order to snatch the promise of glory from the jaws of disaster.

Snuff Box Theatre, the company that brought you 'Bitch Boxer', invites you to let four wannabe cosmonauts transport you to a time where the very idea of a man in space boggled the minds of millions.
