Trouble on Planet Earth

4.5 stars ‘Fresh, slick, modern and so sharp it could have your eye out’

The Messenger Review, Australia


A choose-your-own-adventure, this play has 24 possible endings and hundreds of different scenes to get you there, with the audience selecting (by shouty democracy) the correct journey to take.

You wake in a crashed car, a woman with an identity you cannot remember, and a man’s briefcase in the seat beside you. As tonight’s story unfolds (for every night is different) you might end up caught in a film noir romance, in a cold dystopia, in a prison drama, a space romp, a gangster’s shoot-em-up or anywhere besides.
