The Department of Theater's Senior Company 2013 presents David Greig's The cosmonaut's last message to the woman he once loved in the former Soviet Union.

A forgotten cosmonaut and the daughter he left behind.
A polite stranger in a suit.
A failing marriage.

Cosmonaut is an epic journey littered with televisions, airports, tape recorders, strip clubs, and a visit to Norway. Scottish Playwright David Greig presents us with individuals desperately attempting to communicate as their efforts amount to nothing but static. Cosmonaut takes us through that attempt, moving to assemble these "orbiting fragments of life" into, as Greig puts it, "a story that makes sense."
