About The First

A spacecraft approaches Mars. They are The First. Back on Earth, two writers compose two speeches. One if the mission succeeds. And another... A play about tragedy, heroism and imperfection. THE FIRST comes from the creators of two SHOWS OF THE WEEK from VAULT Festival 2019. EMILY JENKINS - Director Bobby & Amy (Upstairs, Pleasance Courtyard, FRINGE FIRST WINNER; Vault Festival 2019, SHOW OF THE WEEK WINNER), Serious Money (Sainsbury Theatre), Quarantine (National Maritime Museum), Vinegar Tom), Merry Wives of Windsor (both Royal and Derngate), KCS (Southwark Playhouse), Rainbow (Zoo Southside, FRINGE FIRST WINNER ), Mojo Mickybo (Old Red Lion) and Fame (Northcott Theatre). Emily is a text coach working at Shakespeare’s Globe, LAMDA and National Youth Theatre. BARRY MCSTAY - Writer Vespertilio (Dublin Fringe, 2019; VAULT Festival 2019, SHOW OF THE WEEK winner), Quarantine (SPECIFIQ, National Maritime Museum), Bir Tawil (Druid Theatre, Galway International Arts Festival 2017), Our Island (Mirari Productions, Dublin Fringe 2015 - shortlisted, Writers Guild of Ireland Award). Barry's writing has been nominated for 5 Dublin Fringe Festival Awards and longlisted for the Bruntwood Prize and the Theatre 503 Playwriting Award twice. Barry is also an actor and podcaster. 12+ Tags: New Writing, Sci-Fi, Tear Jerker *Strong language and adult themes
