Science Fiction Theatre Festival

27th May 2019 - 1st Jun 2019

Downstairs - Pleasance London

7pm, 3:30pm


It’s back! Horatio Productions’ Science Fiction Theatre Festival returns for a stellar second edition. After a successful first festival at The Space - involving over 80 artists, and presenting 17 new plays filled with aliens, robots, time travelers, and crazy scientists- the Science Fiction Theatre Festival is landing at Pleasance Islington for a whole week of futuristic extravaganza.

Short plays, talks with industry experts, new writing, imaginary worlds and mind-bending visions of our world that will provoke, inspire and, above all, entertain. The festival features the work of writers from all over the world, and talks from experts in comic books, film, cosplay and science fiction culture.

All of this, wrapped around Horatio Productions’ featured play, ReGen: What is the future of stem cell research? The paths of two strangers meet at a crossroads between vanity and guilt. Gastronomy meets surgery in a world-changing clash of egos.

Horatio Productions is the largest company specialised in new writing for science fiction theatre in the UK. Their work has been described as quirky, peculiar, and utterly bizarre. Their last play, Red Button, had sold out runs both at Edinburgh Fringe and Camden Fringe. The company is heavily invested in promoting the work of international writers and artists from a diverse, intersectional background.
