After discovering a comet hurtling towards Earth, Toby snaps and turns into the action hero in his own movie on a mission to save the world from impending doom. Flashback a year: Toby is knocked off course when somebody crashes into his life.
A disaster movie about falling in love. Or a rom-com about the end of the world.
Catching Comets is a multi-dimensional genre mash-up from Ransack Theatre that asks how we're supposed to be big, brave and strong when we look and sound nothing like the heroes we grew up with on our screens.
"Catching Comets is exhilarating, heart-warming and honest – one not to be missed!"
“Wittily written and directed by Piers Black and performed with flair”
“Incredibly well pitched … smart action-movie spoof”
Strong language and short period of strobe lighting.
Ticket prices are full £13 and £8 concession (under 16 and unwaged)
