dc.description.abstractJet Propulsion, a two-act drama on the life of John Whiteside Parsons, is the candidate's thesis, along with the essay "American Weird: Researching John Whiteside Parsons, the Occult Religion of Aleister Crowley and the Formation of the American Space Program." The essay shows the author's work process in the writing of the play, as well as the difficulties inherent in finding truthful information regarding Fringe religions and cult personalities and in using that information to create a compelling drama and to produce that drama as part of the Kansas City Fringe Festival. Biographical materials regarding the primary historical persons depicted in the play are included. Appendices of a previous draft of the script and biographical portraits have been included to illustrate the author's process in creating the drama.eng
