Lonely Planet
by Steven Dietz
directed by Jim Petosa
FEB 3-MAR 4, 2018

In a revival to commemorate its 25th anniversary, Lonely Planet tells the story of two friends during the height of the AIDS epidemic in America. While Carl is able to see beyond the confines of Jody’s map store, Jody refuses to acknowledge what’s happening outside. In Lonely Planet, playwright Steven Dietz crafts a humorous and touching play about friendship, loss, and hope.
