The supposed face on Mars? It was commissioned by a politician who knew the truth: Mars was running out of water. But he told the public something else entirely.
Dwayne Yancey is a playwright from the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia in the United States. He's had eight full-length scripts produced, the most recent of those in Melbourne, Australia. He's thrilled to have THE FACE ON MARS produced in London, a city where he studied many years ago as a university student. Find more at dwayneyancey.com or follow him @dwayneyancey
