WORLD PREMIERE

A huge theatrical story told with everyday tiny things.

The odds of perishing in a commercial plane accident are 29.4 million to one. Reassuring. Except if you’re the one.

As emergency masks plummet, engines squeal and hand baggage flies from the overhead bins, two strangers hold hands. Scared and breathless, their lives flash past as they face their final moments together.

Exploring themes of luck and choice, fate and coincidence and above all, what it means to connect with someone, this thrilling production, created by one of Scotland’s leading production companies, is a fantasy table-top exploration using object theatre where time is turned upside down and all the things that matter start to make sense.

‘Captivating, imaginative, tantalisingly unended…I’m bursting to know what happens next.’ THE WEE REVIEW (on a work in progress sharing of Up)

A woman is photographed against a deep blue sky. She appears to be floating in the air. Her hand and leg are outstretched, her long blond hair and clothes blow in the wind. She has a concerned expression.
