Cosmic Capsules (series)

The Intro

Cosmic Capsules is a collection of interlocking standalone science fiction stage plays, written by Michael Starr, which started life in 2005 as an animated webisode series.

Planet of the Zers (2016) was the first storyline to be converted and released under the Cosmic Capsules theatre play series. The second, The Spirit of Krud (2019), is scheduled for stage production through The Fringe Files in 2019.

There are numerous Cosmic Capsules play drafts currently in various states of development. A dedicated Wiki style website is planned to be launched in late 2018.
