Play Details


A lighter & comedic parody of “Space Oddity” by David Bowie. In this version, Ground Control (GC) is constantly nagging Major Tom (MT) to “RTFM” (Read The Freaking Manual).

MT thinks reading the manual is just too time-consuming and if GC would just do HIS job of keeping him away from emergency situations, all would be fine. GC wonders how MT ever got selected for the mission in the first place.

This comedy play is also published in the 8 play comedy collection Moments of Madness
