After the Challenger

Music by Dan Gibson

Book and Lyrics by Alex Higgin-Houser

Written in collaboration with NASA astronauts Mary Cleave, Pinky Nelson, Brewster Shaw, and Steve Hawley, Discovery asks: after catastrophe, how do you choose to move on?

Following the Challenger explosion, Discovery follows Sally Ride and a host of NASA astronauts as they grieve their lost friends, uncover the horrible truths behind the disaster, and discover who they have to become to return to space again.

This piece is currently in development.

Casting: Flexible. 10 actors, covering SATB.



At present, Dan and I are seeking additional workshop opportunities for Discovery, rather than licensed performances.
