Set aboard an ill-fated spacecraft returning from Earth's first lunar expedition, this 1956 adventure returns to the stage in FringeNYC
Arch Oboler's NIGHT OF THE AUK premiered on Broadway in 1956. Originally produced by the legendary Kermit Bloomgarden, the first production of this space epic was directed by luminary Sidney Lumet, and starred Christopher Plummer, Claude Rains, and Dick York. This summer, Outside Inside will produce the first major revival of Oboler's interstellar adventure as part of the 16th Annual New York International Fringe Festival!
Hugely influential in the world of science-fiction, Arch Oboler's underrated and undervalued works have all but fallen into obscurity. Now, Outside Inside needs your help to resurrect a lost classic of the sci-fi genre.
Set aboard an ill fated spacecraft returning to Earth after the first successful lunar expedition, NIGHT OF THE AUK is a nail-biting adventure, a cautionary fable, and the most fun you're likely to have in the theatre this summer!
Written largely in response to the growing threat of nuclear war, the play has only grown in significance over the last 60 years. Presented in a sleek new 75 minute adaptation and designed by a top-notch team of professional artists, NIGHT OF THE AUK promises to be an unforgettable FringeNYC experience.
But we can't do it without you.
Your generous support will help provide basic essentials to bring this production to life. Donations will provide Outside Inside with capital for rehearsal space, production design, marketing tools, and much, much more.
