ROCKET MAN by Steven Dietz
Discussion led by Peter Parolin
ROCKET MAN is a serious comedy about the road not taken. Donny Rowan has placed everything he owns on his front lawn, along with a sign that reads: “Here’s my life. Make an offer.” He has cut a skylight into his attic and placed his E-Z Boy recliner underneath—where he can sit, staring at the stars. Somewhere in the universe, Donny believes, is a place where all the roads we never chose converge. ROCKET MAN explores one man’s obsessive desire to find this “parallel world”—and the profound effect of his decision on his family and friends.
“Incredibly creative and daringly different, be prepared to embark on a voyage into those secret spaces within the human mind which most of us never unlock.” —Arizona Daily Wildcat.
“An engaging investigation into one man’s crisis of faith and the consequences of his actions.” —Arizona Daily Star.
