A single man is alone on a ship traveling through space. It’s slowly losing power, and he has to maintain it just long enough to get to the next planet which is five years away. Earth is a distant memory, and his only companion is the ship’s computer. And so begins the sci-fi drama, Between Solar Systems, written and directed by Scott McArdle.
We don’t often see sci-fi on stage, unless it’s the occasional Red Dwarf or Doctor Who tribute show. We do see plenty of dystopian near-futures, or unsettling parallel worlds, but these rarely emphasize technology, artificial intelligence, space travel and so on. However, Scott McArdle and his trusty crew of authentically intelligent theatre-makers are here to do just that.
