Description

If we started the world again, would we do a better job? The world they're in has fallen apart. The people are randomly selected out of a diverse pool of candidates to travel to the new world. They have learnt from the mistakes of the past and this world promises to be better. Aleece isn't so sure but Si believes the new world will be just what they say it is and more. As the people grow, the system begins to show its true colours, and we begin to see if a do-over is really possible.

A first rate cast paired with clever and powerful direction make up a riveting, absorbing and thought provoking production.
That's a lot of adjectives, but trust me when I say that it deserves every one : I've seen the play four times in a row already, and I've got the ticket stubs to prove it. Definitely worth making time for.

The new world is not always a better one! An interesting story which could one could certainly see becoming a reality. A strong cast made clever use of a small space with smooth scene transitions and great physical theatre. There was lots to cover in the story line and there were a few gaps which could have been covered a little more effectively however this did not detract from our enjoyment of the show. Si and Aleece were convincing as the lead characters and gave excellent performances. It certainly does generate provoking after show discussion about the prospect of a new world. Would we repeat the same mistakes? Do we need a system to run things? Should non comforters be removed? Go and see this show, it’s definitely worth a look.

I like the direction of this piece, with its staccato scene changes and stylised movement. The synchronised, robotically sing-song speech of the two women representing The System (Ishaa Mane and Jade Armstrong) is chilling, and the ensemble (James Armitage, Klara Grapci-Germizaj, Suzy Palmer, Alice Popadopoulou and Kathryn Ravey) create a convincing populace for the new colony.
