A brand new lo-fi, sci-fi comedy from the team behind two Melbourne Fringe awards. Earth is about to implode on itself. Passengers and crew board the very last flight departing to a distant planet, humanity’s final asylum. Tensions begin to materialise about how deserved everybody’s place on the craft is. This distracts from the real peril squelching up on them—space squid.
Together with Asian Ghost-ery Store and Salty, The Yonder is the concluding play in a series that looks at race, cultural identity and migration with humour and absurdity. This work is devised by comic Elizabeth Davie, actor Ezel Doruk and theatre maker Shannan Lim, who have trained in physical comedy with Phil Burgers, Deanna Fleysher and Philippe Gaulier.
