Moon City: An Ahistoric Tale Regarding a Historic Man in a Florida Swamp


  • Studio @620 620 1st Avenue South St. Petersburg, FL USA

Miniature Curiosa is pleased to bring you their latest spectacle about a man who's got dreams so big they can only fit in the swamp. Moon City: An Ahistoric Tale Regarding a Historic Man in a Florida Swamp promises puppets, precariously hung light bulbs, and, of course, an entire miniature amusement park in less than ten-feet of space. In preparation for this swampland fantasy, we’d like to include a brief statement given at the ground-breaking ceremony by the mayor of Moon City himself, Mr. Frederick Ingersoll:

“Imagine you’re walking - no, make that trudging through the Florida swamp, the mud tickling your ankles after a long day of work, a long day of the same ole thing as yesterday. And suddenly, you are surrounded by the radiating light of the moon. But it’s not just any moon. It’s not even your moon. It’s a moon that’s brighter than any moon you’ve ever seen and any moon you’re likely to see again, unless you come back tomorrow. And I do hope you come back. Welcome to Moon City."  

Moon City, An Ahistoric Tale Regarding a Historic Man in a Florida Swamp is the second play in Miniature Curiosa’s trilogy of plays about a man named Frederick Ingersoll. Not a piece of this play is fact; rather the entire romp is a make believe marvel regarding a man named Frederick.  

This play kicks off Miniature Curiosa's 5 Cities, 5 Plays, 555 Days. This project promises to premiere five new plays in five different cities over the course of a year and a half.
