Vinay Patel reimagines Chekhov’s bittersweet final play for 2022 and beyond, in a world premiere production directed by James Macdonald.
A starship travels through space, almost at the speed of light, searching for a home, billions of miles from earth.
Half of the ship is out of action, falling apart. The heating is broken – again. Like their ancestors before them, the crew were born on this ship, this journey is all they’ve ever known. Until a new planet is spotted – Imagine what we could do with the place.
But not everyone welcomes change. Will they leap into a new future or stay stuck on this journey forever?
