Remember P.E. kit. Cancel Free Trial. Call Mum.
Everyone writes instructions to their future selves – but what happens when the future starts writing back?

Dr Rosy Carrick has to build a time machine because her future self is stuck in the past after a failed mission to save Russian revolutionary poet Vladimir Mayakovsky. She summons the help of science’s greatest minds – Einstein, Hawking, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Rocky Balboa – in order to rewrite history and save herself…

This complex and emotional performance explores the realities of self-determination and time travel, taking in quantum physics, David Bowie, motherhood, #metoo and some most heinous hangovers.

‘Surprising, audacious, original. Superb’ – ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ EdinburghFestival.org

Directed by Katie Bonna
