Season 5, Episode 5: "The Contest of the Cosmos, or How Divinia von Presterton and Lord Tiberius Q. Braithwaite Defeated Invaders from Another Planet!!"

A Steampunk Galimaufrey written and directed by Keith Suta!

1901: Divinia von Presterton and Lord Tiberius Q. Braithwaite are assisting their friend, Nikola Tesla, in his latest experiment -- beaming messages into space! Unfortunately, the recipients found the messages a little TOO inviting. Soon, someone has landed in New Jersey and only Divinia holds the key to saving humankind -- or so says renowned psychic Victoria Woodhull! To save the day, she will need the help of her father (though he's only a brain in a jar), Tesla, Tiberius, and re-zombified Benjamin Franklin to save the Earth from invaders from Mars!

Featuring: Sarah Suta as Divinia von Presterton; Robert Dalton as Lord Tiberius Q. Braithwaite; Ryan Lawrence Flynn as Nikola Tesla and Benjamin Franklin; Sadie Cassavaugh as Victoria Woodhull and Carrie Nation; Christian McDaniel as Henry Ford, Preston von Presterton, and the Martian; and Keith Suta as Thomas Edison and Mr. Announcer! Live Sound Effects performed by Kyle Suta and Sadie Cassavaugh! Music written and performed by Scott Parsons, remixed by Keith Suta!

Recorded live at Bozeman, Montana's Verge Theater on July 11, 2015! What you hear is what the audience heard with no overdubs and minimal post-production on volume to try to make it comfortable to your ears! All sound effects were analog and executed live by our fantastic performers!
