Zounds! It's the 25th century and that dastardly villain, Snivelling Snidely Backlash, is stealing a farm from some old people because he knows that under the soil there's some of the richest rocket fuel ever discovered. With it he can control the galaxy! Space Cadet Bob hopes to pay off the farm's mortgage with his latest invention, a rocket that goes sideways. Enter the lovely heroine, Rosa Budd, fresh from the Metropolis City Poor House and Collection Depot For Used Space Suits. Pity poor Rosa as she's tied to the rocket and almost launched to another planet. Assorted weirdos arrive and depart the stage in a storm of funny lines, mad chases, and zany complications. This play can be done with just a few chairs for props. In fact, the tackier the scenery and costumes, the better. Many small roles, written for an easy rehearsal schedule. Full evening.
