Catching Comets
Catching Comets

This event is now off sale for internet bookings - Door sales are still available for this evening

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!"
★★★★★ Voice Magazine

“Wittily written and directed by Piers Black and performed with flair”
★★★★ The Scotsman

“Incredibly well pitched … smart action-movie spoof”
★★★★ The Stage
