Important information:

This show contains some strong language, flashing lights and haze.

Written by Piers Black

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 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.

This performance will be in Pleasance Downstairs which is operating at a maximum of 80% capacity to provide additional spacing to customers as restrictions relax. This is in addition to enhanced cleaning, additional hand sanitation stations, and improved ventilation throughout performances to provide the safest theatre experience possible. We also strongly encourage all ticket holders to wear a mask while inside the venue, unless exempt.


Age: 12+ (guideline).
