The Man From Earth

Presented by Red Phoenix Theatre and Holden Street Theatres



A wonderful stage adaptation of Jerome Bixby's cult sci-fi move. Bixby wrote some of the most memorable moments of contemporary science fiction including episodes of Twilight Zone and the original series of Star Trek.

History professor John Oldman suddenly resigns from the University. His startled colleagues demand an explanation. But they're shocked to hear his reason for leaving. John claims he is 14,000 years old and that he must move on every ten years to prevent his secret being discovered. Tempers rise and emotions flow as John’s fellow professors attempt to poke holes in his story. What starts out as a friendly gathering soon builds to an unexpected and shattering climax.

"The Man From Earth gradually and stimulatingly builds to a pitch of near hypnotic intensity" - The Hollywood Reporter

"A tall tale that ends with a devastatingly clever twist." - The Providence Journal
