About the Play:

HARD TO FIND BOOK, only a very limited number of copies are still available.

Two Steps From the Stars (English version of Deux pas vers les étoiles) is a full-length drama by Jean-Rock Gaudreault, translated by Linda Gaboriau. Profound philosophical dialogue abounds from the two 11-year-old school mates as, after school one day, Junior shares his plans with Maggie to to jump on a passing train and run away from home and Maggie challenges his idea. Sometimes the trains of childhood run very late. And rumours have a bit of truth to them… And what if the new world were only two steps away?

Two Steps From the Stars centres on a boy named Junior who wishes to run away to the United States to become an astronaut. Junior is afraid he won't be able to realize his dream of becoming an astronaut because he failed an exam, so he decides to leave by himself for Houston on a train. Cornelia, same age, who is hiding near the train, threatens him to expose his secret if he will not take her along. Now, what if a new world was only two steps away from them? Little by little Junior and Cornelia begin to foster love and courage without knowing. They take a chance to try a little escape journey, which will lead them to a wonderful trip to their own wonderland.
