About

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. Natalia 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…

Following his critically acclaimed The Empire at The Royal Court (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.

Reviews

★★★★
“Engrossing and spikily stylish”
The Times

“A bleakly poetic new play by DC Moore with shades of science fiction”
The Stage

“The dialogue zings with humour, intelligence and subtle subtext”
Exeunt 

“Total blackouts, and scene-change sound that vibrates the rib cage, add to the sense of another place as if we too, had been transported into alien territory”
The Herald
