A PLAY ABOUT SPACE
Written by Uther Dean
The Distant Future. The Human/Zorgon Alliance’s Interstellar War is winding down after many long space years. A retired bounty hunter cruises the outer systems. She’s running from something. War is very good at bringing people out of retirement. As many figures from the past come out of the wood-work and her living cargo proves itself much more precious than first presumed, all this bounty hunter and her friends can do is run as far as they can.
But can you ever really out run your past? Especially in space, where even breathing is hard.
A Play About Space is the latest work from the acclaimed Wellington-based theatre company my accomplice that brought you the critically acclaimed DOORS. WALLS. AND ALSO SILENCE., think of all the fun you’ll find in the rubber room and A Play About Love. They are Chapman Tripp award winning actor Paul Waggott, award winning writer Uther Dean, and acclaimed actor/producer Hannah Banks.
A Play About Space is every sci-fi film you’ve loved when you were ten. It’s every sci-fi film you’ve loved today. And with their signature stripped-back theatrical aesthetic my accomplice will be accomplishing all that scale, grandeur and spectacle with a room full of desk-lamps. Delightfully and magically theatrical as well as being fun, funny and intense, A Play About Space is going to be one of the most pants-tightening extreme theatre productions you will see all year. We promise.
