Harlan Dodge and three of his fellow convicts have just busted out of the joint and stole the space barge Artemis. The cops are after them, the Guild is after them, and now they're just drifting in the Omega Sector. What to do next? If they can find a certain small crystal, they'll be wealthy enough to buy off most of their problems. But if they do find it, what's to stop them from killing each in order to be the only owner of the crystal? In space, no one can hear you something something, or something. Artemis Burn is a dark space comedy by Damien Samways, based on the Richard Strasser online audio series of the same name. Tin Ceiling presents Artemis Burn at 8 p.m. Friday, Saturday and Sunday (December 4 through 20) at the Tin Ceiling (3159 Cherokee Street; www.tinceiling.org). Tickets are $10. This is the company's final show at the Tin Ceiling, but it's not the company's final show. They'll be back in an as-yet-undetermined location for their annual Memorial Day show, seven/24.
Fridays-Sundays. Starts: Dec. 4. Continues through Dec. 20, 2009
