Past Saturn is published by Next Stage Press as part of a collection of four one acts titled AWESOME AMERICA BY ARTHUR M. JOLLY, SCOTT GIBSON, DIANA HOWIE and GENE KATO.

From the publisher's website: "Four plays make up the evening of theatre known as AWESOME AMERICA! - giving audiences a glimpse of our country through stories inspired by real-life roadside attractions. In Arthur M. Jolly's PAST SATURN, we meet a couple whose marriage is on the rocks, a couple hiding an embarrassing secret, a pair of sandals and an unhelpful Park Ranger... what could go wrong on an Alaskan hike in the face of an approaching blizzard?"

The play premiered in March of 2015 by the Foothills Theatre Company in Littleton, Colorado. I was there for a wonderful audience talkback session, and a fun time was had by all!
