Theatre Royal Plymouth is set to premiere a down to earth story about relationships and space travel.
DC Moore’s Another Place (Alaska, The Empire) continues the theatre’s remit to seek out the very best of new writing.
The production runs in The Drum from November 10-22.
DC Moore’s Another Place is a compelling play about our obsession to uncover the secrets of space, and the tragedy of what we leave behind.
Full of dark humour, razor-sharp wit and intricately portrayed characters, this is a gripping play about what it means to be human.
When Earth is the loneliest planet, where else is there to go?
Paul is a specialist in cognitive behaviour, tasked with designing a 20-year mission to Mars.
Daniel is a husband and new father struggling with the reality of marriage and the monotony of everyday life.
Nat is a twin sister, disillusioned by the world’s obsession with space travel and sorry that she didn’t say goodbye. And Amy asks a lot of questions…
The production stars Leah Brotherhead (Jane Seymour in Wolf Hall), Anna Elijasz, Rob Heaps (King Lear, Chichester and Broadway) and Robert Lonsdale (From Here To Eternity)
Another Place will be directed by Jo McInnes.
