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
"Catching Comets is exhilarating, heart-warming and honest – one not to be missed!"

Sunday 10 October, 4.30pm
A fig tree with a tale to tell; a grieving teenage girl who wants to know her family’s story; two sets of lovers hiding from society. In her enchanting new novel, The Island of Missing Trees, Elif Shafak considers how the story of humans and the natural world are entwined. Set in London and the island of Cyprus, Elif explores roots, trauma and how understanding ourselves and our history can be healing. Elif is a British-Turkish novelist, feminist and activist and we’re delighted to welcome her back to MLF. The author of 19 books, translated into 54 languages, Elif’s previous novel 10 Minutes 38 Seconds in this Strange World was shortlisted for the Booker Prize, and The Forty Rules of Love was chosen by the BBC as one of 100 Novels That Shaped Our World. Elif will be in conversation with Ellah P Wakatama.
Advance tickets for this event are now available for MLF Get Closer Members to buy. Memberships start at £20 per year - for full details of membership benefits and buying options click HERE.
