A Theatre Royal Plymouth production
By D C Moore
Directed by Jo McInnes
The Drum, Theatre Royal Plymouth
Thursday 6 – Saturday 22 November
Leah Brotherhead, Anna Elijasz, Rob Heaps and Robert Lonsdale will form the cast of the world premiere of DC Moore’s new play Another Place, produced by Theatre Royal Plymouth and opening in Plymouth this November.
Following his critically acclaimed The Empire at the Royal Court Theatre (a Theatre Royal Plymouth co-production), and The Swan at the National Theatre, 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. Directed by Jo McInnes.
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…
Another Place will be directed by Jo McInnes, and is a Theatre Royal Plymouth production, following recent successes MADMAN, Solid Air and Forever House.
