The play, which will be shown three days in a row (9 June-11 June 2022) at the Queensland Multicultural Centre is an Australian science fiction production that revolves around humanity’s relationship with technology.

Control director Timothy Wynn said, “This show features some of Brisbane’s best up and coming talent at their finest.”

It stars Triona Calimbayan-Giles from BC Productions, Queensland Theatre’s Egan Sun-Bin, Nykita O’Keeffe of Lynch & Paterson, and Matt Domingo of 24 Hour Musical Project.

“The story spans three distinctly different worlds and it is an exciting challenge to honour and detail each one,” Mr Wynn said.

Mr Wynn, an artistic director from THAT Production Company is a recent Matilda Award Nominee.

The highly acclaimed production is a masterpiece of Melbourne-based playwright Keziah Warner. It was shortlisted for the Patrick White Playwrights Award and was commended by the judges back in 2017.

“Told across several decades, from Melbourne to Mars, Keziah Warner’s startling, provocative and funny new play explores humanity’s desire to dictate how we’re perceived by others,”  the description for the play reads.
