Darkside, by Ken Jones, deals with the fictional mission of Apollo 18, the last of the lunar exploration missions, launched in October 1973. The play picks up with the end of the surface activities on the moon, with the crew of the lunar module ready to launch back into orbit to meet up with its companion in the Command Module “Independence” for the return to Earth. The lunar module rocket engine does not ignite and the astronauts are stranded on the dark side of the moon. As they work with ground control toward rescue, flashbacks reveal their stories.

There are roles available for five men — three of them the astronauts — and three women. Those auditioning will be asked to read from the script and those interested in principal roles will be asked to read a monologue, taken from the script and selected by the director.
