Humankind is moving to Mars. (We promise, it's the best way to dodge those Earthly troubles). Your town is being re-located to the Red Planet, and attending this info session is required viewing. Tired of green? Embrace the endless shades of Martian red. No more mosquitos, no more bothersome birds and no more noisy ocean vistas and smelly trees. Mars offers stunning landscapes of endless, featureless desolation. (Earth’s wildlife is too diverse and captivating; Mars' wildlife is much more humble.)

Join renowned storytellers Bunk Puppets for a satirical information session laying out their daring escape plan from Earth. Learn what’s coming along, (and who’s not). Are you too busy with life on Earth? You’ll learn how Mars offers you 24/7 isolation and is just a rocket ride away! On Mars, you can have all the (indoor) cats you want! Enjoy potatoes, potatoes and more potatoes. Say goodbye to lush gardens, and hello to a lifetime of yummy hydroponic lettuce. Enjoy sandstorms that double as exfoliating treatments – the Martian spa experience. Learn about the challenges of terraforming Mars (it’s just like gardening on steroids).

Take a trip with us to Mars. Because when Earth's problems seem too hard, it's time to head to the Red Planet!
