The Telescope Season: Thursday 27 May - Saturday 5 May (No show Sun/Mon) Time: 8pm Tickets: $16 full/ $12 concession

the telescope is the tale of an agoraphobic astronomer on the verge of a major discovery.

the telescope was first performed In 2002,as part of the STAB commission at BATS Theatre. Starring Peter Rutherford as the agoraphobic astronomer, the telescope is unique in that the story unfolds almost exclusively using sound and light.

While there is dialogue, it is the compelling sounds from HUM, the Wellington Lounge act, and the lighting from award winning designer Martyn Roberts which drive the audience understanding of this tale of loneliness, love and hope.
