Below the surface a storm awaits...

Out Of This World is action packed physical-theatre from acclaimed director Mark Murphy. It combines his signature mix of ground-breaking aerial choreography, original text and explosive special effects with projected film and animation. The result is a show that is both an intense psychological thriller and heart-rending medical drama.

As a woman descends into a medically induced coma, her crashed imagination takes control creating a vivid inward cinema in which she reviews her life. After discovering a shocking truth, she begins a very real fight to survive.

Don’t miss this visually stunning, thrilling new show.

Duration: 1 hour 25mins with no interval
