COMET

★★★★

'IT'S QUIRKY, UNSETTLING AND STAYS WITH YOU LONG AFTER THE PLAY IS OVER.'

WHATS ON STAGE


COMET - KIERAN KNOWLES

COMET was performed at the Pleasance Theatre, London from 27th February 2018 - 18th March 2018.

Charlotte has met a boy online.
That's about the only thing in her story that's conventional.
The boy has an idea - an idea that will change the world, her world, forever.
Comet is about exploring an echo chamber, about jumping down a rabbit hole and losing sight of reality. It's about reaching an extreme and looking back to where you started unable to find the common ground.
It's an exploration of an idea, an analysis of the conclusion it draws and a story about a girl who falls in love with the wrong argument.

Comet was the first play written for (RE)PRESENTED and was directed by Tommo Fowler.
