140 Million Miles


    A co-production with Òran Mór and Traverse Theatre

    Written by Adam Peck & Directed by Nik Partridge

    We don’t see any reason to stay here – life on Earth really isn’t that great, not for us. 

    Neil and Dawn have been offered the trip of a lifetime – a space-flight to Mars. All they have to do is complete basic training and sign some disclaimers. But is there something they’re  not being told? And what happens when they want to come back?

    140 Million Miles is play about what it means to leave the world you know behind you.

    The design is good, with nothing more than two chairs, a couple of metal briefcases and some small props neatly stowed beneath them

    Theatre Bristol Writers

    The performances by Darren Seed (Neil) and Rosie Mason (Dawn) are both strong and provide a nice blend of comedy and drama, in just the right measures.

    The Fix

    The spare, resonant strength of Peck’s writing transforms the couple’s lost spaceship into a powerful metaphor for the place in which most ordinary citizens now find themselves, beguiled by the transient prospect of possible media fame into accepting the most profound kind of powerlessness

    The Scotsman

    The two performances by Rosie Mason and Darren Seed are both full of light and shade. From the sparky optimism of the start through to the glum resignation of their fate they both manage to avoid any sense of stereotyping as a pair of likeable pawns in a large, unfeeling, corporate game.

    Adam Peck’s new play gives us much food for thought
