Home Is Where the TV Is
by James Gulden
Home Is Where the TV Is, a play about the connections between theatre and certain kinds of television, and the way television affects our lives, through a parody lens of two classic shows: Star Trek and Cheers.
"Space Jaunt" showrunner Leah Jottenby finds out her budget is being cut into by her rival, "Beers" showrunner George Barrows, and they clash at a production meeting. When George makes a snide remark about a crossover episode between the two shows, their boss Eric Grantham demands the crossover be produced. Leah and George are forced to put their differences aside and work together to combine their passion projects together, and the casts of both shows are caught in the crossfire. Will they succeed and create the best episode TV has ever seen? Or will this crossover tear Cardinal Network Television apart?
This show includes light sexual content and references, as well as discussion of stereotyping.
