Cosmic Capsules (series)

The Intro

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

Planet of the Zers (2016) was the first story to be adapted and released under the Cosmic Capsules theatre play series. The second, The Spirit of Krud (2019), is currently in pre-production for its world stage premiere, which is scheduled for touring via The Fringe Files in 2019.

There are numerous additional Cosmic Capsules play drafts currently in various states of development. A dedicated Wiki style website has now been launched and can be found here.
