An intergalactic space relocation project may provide the solution to avoiding the apocalypse in Mission Creep, a new play that is enjoying a run at The White Bear Theatre this week.
mission creep: noun. A gradual shift in objectives, often resulting in an unplanned long-term commitment.
Tess and Liam are determined to get off the planet at any cost. On paper, they’re the perfect applicants for Britain’s intergalactic relocation project: they’re young, fertile, and their queerplatonic relationship might even pass for heterosexual bliss. All that’s left is to get past Mary and the interview…and if they have to do one or two extra things to impress the panel, isn’t it worth it to avoid the apocalypse?
The world premiere of Mission Creep opens just before Asexual Awareness Week on 20th October. So, it’s the perfect time to see a new play by an emerging asexual playwright, featuring a dynamic asexual protagonist, and asexual and bisexual solidarity IN SPACE.
Content warnings: this play contains swearing, a nuclear war setting, onstage intimacy (fully clothed), mentions of homophobia and biphobia, and discussions of death, pregnancy, consent, and peril.
When: Until 19th October 2019, at 7pm
Where: The White Bear Theatre, 138 Kennington Park Rd, Kennington, London SE11 4DJ
£: Tickets cost £12 for adults and £10 for concessions (Suitable for ages 16+)
