“If you’ve enjoyed Original Theatre’s previous digital offerings including Birdsong and Watching Rosie you may want to check out this new play written by Torben Betts, one of theatre’s more under-rated writers. Inspired by the failed Apollo 13 mission which took place 50 years ago and which should have been the third lunar landing, the piece uses some of the transcripts from the flight to tell the dramatic story of three astronauts who lose all communication with earth and have to fight for survival.”
“Torben Betts’ The Dark Side of The Moon explores the outer limits of faith, hope and the power of the human spirit.”
Marking 50 years since the launch of the ill-fated Apollo 13 mission, and based, in part, on actual transcripts, this brand-new online play by Torben Betts is a captivating re-telling of one of the greatest space stories of all time.
From the creative team behind the critically acclaimed lockdown production of Sebastian Faulks's Birdsong Online and Watching Rosie.
