THAT MAD LITTLE PLANET CALLED EARTH
In association with The Hidden Theatre Company
A sci-fi comedy by Tamsin Irwin set billions of years ago about how life started on Earth. The planets are in a race to be the first to create life and in the wake of the Extinction Rebellion this play will hit you with a BANG!
“An ending has to have a beginning, so there must be a narrative” and Irwin has encapsulated this wonderfully through her witty exploration of relationships in our solar system.
Watch the story unfold through flirting, friendship and rivalries and join us at the start of this new space adventure…
Irwin’s play was also part of the UN’s 2018 World Space Week at the British Interplanetary Society.
VENUS: Cherish it.
...You might not have it forever.
EARTH: Does forever exist.
VENUS: Only the Universe knows that.
