Jack Sharkey

Published by Samuel French Inc

3 Male 3 Female

This wacky musical is about one George Kipple, whom his archetypal Jewish Mother likes to refer to as a "professional failure"

George has never succeeded in anything; but he finally achieves success when he inadvertently becomes an astronaut to Mars, where he defeats the Red Nemesis (a monster who is decimating the Martians), gets the girl (his Earth sweetheart Miriam) and becomes a financial success to boot

Fans of Jack Sharkey are sure to love this show
