New Year’s Party and New Season!

New Year’s Day, Stars or Mars Time, was celebrated on the 9th May! As a fresh and excitable one year old, we reminisced over the past and made plans for the future over cocktails and crepes!

Stay tuned for more updates! The earliest plans are to update our media and social presence, as well as announce our new Summer Season!

SUMMER SEASON OF STARS OR MARS


On June 1st, 2015 at Hackney Attic, we have RESPAWN

logo

Who knew immortality would be such a hard sell? In this new world, uploading consciousnesses has become a game changer. Everything we believed about time, personality and character is now under threat. In Respawn, we follow a set of characters who are dealing with their multitude of pasts and futures, as well as prejudices from the present. When you can live forever, can you really escape your past and reputation?

Our hashtag for the play is: #Respawn


Cuckoos and Chrysalides

 August 14th – 16th at the London Welsh Centre
Cuckoos

Set in the near future, we follow the struggles of Caitlin, a woman who has preserved her children’s consciousnesses to be downloaded at a time where she feels ready. As the virtual space becomes cramped and contested, she must fight the system with her mother.

On the other side of reality lies the consciousness of an astronaut who was killed in her mission. Will she ever find her team? Will she manage to be brought back to life – and if so, at what cost?

Set in the far future, we follow the lives of six women who have become assimilated into the hivemind; changing the way we see birth, life, death and love. Who will benefit and who will suffer from this new technology? What would the reasons be for connecting and how far will the individual be compromised?

the play is back, following a run at the Bread and Roses Theatre in Clapham last year.

What’s New?

1) RESPAWN
logoWe are taking the stage at the Hackney Attic with our show called RESPAWN! The play follows two identities trying to find peace with their pasts and present, which has been drastically changed through the process of uploading consciousnesses. Can they prove that immortality doesn’t have to be a hard sell?

We’re delighted to see Terra Firma in the listings – it feels all the more real! We’re on the tail (feather) end of casting, so the real fun begins when the rehearsals start! I’ll be blogging the RnD process throughout as well as other snippets we find along the way.

Our link for tickets can be found here: http://www.camdenfringe.com/detailact.php?acts_id=445

Do check out the shows – the Fringe starts on the 28th July – 24th August so they’ll be plenty to whet your appetite!

Many thanks to the Camden Fringe for welcoming us to this great festival!
