Time to Go – theatre performance

With planet earth moving closer and closer to climate shut-down, Mars-crossed lovers Marvin and Luna stare-down prejudice and hypocrisy to join the Ship of Hope – an envoy of climate-change refugees tasked with populating a new colony with the best that humanity has to offer. But what if you’re not exactly what humanity considers to be its best? Will Luna and Marvin and all those considered to be ‘other’ be left behind to face the inevitable end?

Performed by inclusive theatre company Blue Roo in partnership with Centacare, Time to Go features a cast of 27 fabulous performers and nine outstanding local musicians. Written by award-winning playwright, Sonny Clark, this show is a must-see celebration of diversity.

22–24 November
