WATCH THE PLAY ON DEMAND HERE

The critically acclaimed play transferred to the King's Head theatre in Spring 2019, with Arts Council support. It also appeared at Hounslow Arts Centre in August 2021, during which time the performance was captured for film by SPH Services with support from Hounslow Borough Council. A Q&A with Dan Dawes and Tina Baston followed a live 'watch-along' of the play.

The Soviet Union. 1967. The Space Race is at its height. One woman, Polina Semyenova, is at the centre of it all. She is the listener.

Hidden away in the pithily named ‘Closed Military Townlet No. 1’, Polina looks back on her dreams of being part of the great Communist movement, during one of the most dramatic decades of the Cold War.

Join Polina as she reaches for the stars, and journeys through some of the brightest and darkest moments of the Space Race.
