Light years away from their extinct planet, a crew of Hibernonauts searches patiently for a new world to inhabit. Things aren’t going so well. The air’s running out. There’s not a lot of water. And the only food left tastes like chalk. In fact, it is chalk. Join the crew of Sunflower Estates Six as they struggle to keep the inevitable at bay. Take part in the mythic rituals of suburbia a trillion miles from Earth, where the perils of telemarketers persist, the hardware store is always closed for lunch, and the postman still only rings once.
Are you a sci-fi nerd who loves theatre? Do you spend your spare time reading both Irish Theatre Magazine and Scientific American? Do you crave high art, but also harbour a deep desire to play in a zero gravity ping-pong championship on the International Space Station? It’s okay. We understand. And we’re making this show for you.
But we need some help. In order to stage BYPASS, we need your support. Please take a moment to look at some of the rewards we have on offer and help our production get on its feet. Everyone involved in our mission is working on a profit-share basis, but the cost of intergalactic travel adds up quickly when you factor in venue rental, insurance, lighting hire, technical costs, and projection equipment, not to mention all of the freeze-dried ice cream our intrepid Hibernonauts will consume. Have you seen the cost of space suits these days? Shocking! Our goal is to raise €3000, which will form the majority of our project’s budget.
If you can, please help us fund this fantastic show for people with highbrow ambitions and lowbrow tastes. Come on in. The simulated atmosphere is fine.
