Time To Go

Thursday November 22 2018

Marvin was raised looking up at the stars and dreaming of other places in time. Luna was raised believing in the barriers created by society to keep people like her in their place. With planet earth moving closer and closer to climate shut-down, Marvin and Luna must now stare-down prejudice and hypocrisy so they can join the Ship of Hope, an envoy of climate-change refugees headed for the dunes of the great red giant. The mission is tasked with populating a new colony with the best that humanity has to offer. But what if you are not exactly what humanity considers to be its best? Will Luna and Marvin and all those considered to be ‘other’ be left behind to face the inevitable end?

In a journey full of music and mayhem and a couple of robust knock-knock jokes, our mars-crossed lovers fight against the tyranny of perceived perfection but in the end, they find themselves faced with their biggest challenge. When it’s time to go, conflicted by the emotion of turning their backs on the only home they’ve known and saying goodbye forever to those they love. Will they stay or will they go?

Performed by inclusive theatre company Blue Roo in partnership with Centacare, Time to Go features a cast of 27 fabulous performers and nine outstanding local musicians. Written by award-winning playwright, Sonny Clark, this show is a must-see celebration of diversity.
