Space explorer Supernova Jones, and his robot sidekick S.A.M., have set off on a mission to find the "True Center of the Universe" after the destruction of the Earth. Although it begins as a tongue-in-cheek homage to old pulp sci-fi, it quickly becomes apparent that all is not as it seems. As the true nature of his story is revealed, Jones must choose between giving up what he has left behind or fighting for the impossible.

"The Impossible Adventures of Supernova Jones" was chosen from over 200 submissions for Forget Me Not Theatre Company's New Work Series. It has, also, been awarded Official Finalist for the New York Screenplay Contest (Stageplay Category), Best Creative Entry for the St. Louis Dramatics Club, and has won the A.E. Hotchner Playwriting Contest.
