The Rise and Rise of Daniel Rocket
Cast & Crew
Katie C. Sparer
An adaptation of Peter Parnell's off-Broadway play which describes the experiences of Daniel Rocket who, as a twelve-year-old boy, loves Alice. Twenty years later, after becoming rich and famous, he returns to his hometown a lonely man, reminded of his past love. The fantasy-drama focuses on Rocket's firm belief that he can fly without the aid of a trapeze or flying machine; and, just like Peter Pan, he can! The drama is symbolic of the exceptional person -- the genius left alone, soaring above the crowd of mediocrity, and also presents a picture of suburban life and social mores.
