An extract from Libby Williamson’s play Far Out will be shared as part of Omnibus Theatre’s Engine Room night on 21st Feb.
Engine Room is Omnibus’ regular scratch sharing, where dynamic and talented theatre makers present daring, new work in the first stages of development.
Three space adventurers, Alma, Jed and Ellis, search for a new habitable planet inthis wacky, queer sci-fi play! The year is 2150, and the Earth is nearly burnt out.The one remaining business, Core Corporation, has sent out thousands ofspaceships to find a new home for the human race. Our three pilots dodgecomets and black holes, collect data and chat to aliens; it’s all a bit mad, thisspaceship thing. As their friendship grows, so does the question: what do they doif they actually FIND a planet? And is the human race worth saving at all?
