“Sometimes a piece of theatre chimes so directly with the times it feels as if the ink is wet on the page. This is one. Hot from the Dublin Fringe, Joe Wright's lauded show about homelessness tells the story of a man who may be lying in the gutter but who is looking up at the stars.”

Overview

In 2016 Dublin, Ireland a group of grass root activists occupied “The Apollo House” housing up to forty people during the Christmas period. What ensued brought a city to its feet. This Spoken-word multimedia theatre piece is inspired by that takeover.
We meet the astronaut on O’Connell St. He doesn’t have a home. He is looking for the last pieces of cardboard to fix his rocket ship and make his way to the stars.

Join him on his quest, as he confronts truths about modern day Ireland, as well as reliving some truths of his own.

Age Guidance 15+
