As earth self-destructs, we witness the final effort of the human species’ survival: three astronauts sent to start over on Mars. Each has their own reason for accepting the mission, none are prepared for the consequences that await them on the red planet.
A graphic novel on stage – this is a story of legacy, discovery and what makes us human.
RED EARTH is the world premiere of a new play and the launch of its companion piece: a graphic novel by GMB Chomichuk. The set becomes the pages of a graphic novel and it’s a page turner- the story unfolds with the surprise and adventure of a sci-fi book!
