Our 2023 Spring Season
Ayala, an academic from a distant galaxy is given a once in a lifetime opportunity: A solo research mission studying an ancient civilization on the deserted plant previously known as Earth.
She is given strict orders to solely focus on the cause of the civilizations downfall. Her position is put at risk due to her rebellious colleague Rebi, whose love of humanity is viewed by their superiors as a threat to the entire Galactic Federation.
All Y/N wanted was a normal life with normal friends, a normal family, and a normal boyfriend. When disaster strikes and she’s forced to relocate across the country with her terrible aunt and uncle, her hopes of finding her soulmate are lost forever, until a mysterious football player changes her life forever. But wait! Is that an interdimensional portal to a far-away dystopian future?
Inspired by internet culture and the tropes of fanfiction, this play dives into the beloved nostalgia of 2010s fandom culture.
When you have nowhere left to run, where do you go? When faced with an unavoidable fate, how do you fight against it? And is there any point in it all anyways?
A Stranger Remains is an exploration of the human condition, regret, loneliness, and the cosmic unknowns that haunt humanity at every known corner of existence. Above all, it asks one, solitary question; when the pain of your past and the weight of the world is slamming down upon your shoulders and you just can’t bear it anymore… What truly gets left behind?
Our Typical Season
Every fall and spring semester, we put out a call for students to submit short plays, 30-45 minutes in length. We choose three plays for each season.
Then, teams of students are put together for each play: directors, designers, stage managers, and technical teams. Auditions are held by the directors to cast their productions. It’s a very quick process; each show has 1-4 weeks to rehearse, depending on their slot in the season.
Each show then has three performances. The shows are performed in the Barbara MacIntyre Theatre at the Phoenix, a little black-box studio theatre that offers flexibility for student designers.
The accessibility guide is a document created for SATCo audience members attending our shows. This document contains information about trigger warnings and content notes, accessibility, and more.
We usually post the accessibility guide for each show a few days prior to the show’s opening performance. Please reach out to our Liaison if you have any questions or concerns!
