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
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:
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?
SUM: August 28th-30th at the Etcetera Theatre
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?
SUM the play is back, following a run at the Bread and Roses Theatre in Clapham last year.
Our hashtag for SUM: #sumtheplay
Fringe Booking Details are coming soon! Thank you to the Hackney Attic and the Camden Fringe for supporting SF Theatre!
Thanks also go to BSFA (British Science Fiction Association), who posted the news of our upcoming season here.
We are delighted to announce that we have not one, but two shows in development for this year!
We 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?
