Are they studying Solaris? Or is it Studying them?

Why See Solaris?


Bold new play

The lives of a group of scientists are changed forever in David Greig and Matthew Lutton's adaptation of the cult sci-fi novel, rocketing to the Lyric Hammersmith this Autumn. Originally published in Polish in 1961 Stanislaw Lew's novel takes us high into the cosmos to a space station where said scientists are monitoring Solaris, a mysterious ocean-covered planet. When their communications back to headquarters take on a darker tone, Kris Kelvin is tasked with discovering the problem. But upon boarding the ship, it looks as if the problems with Solaris are only just beginning...

Thrilling and compelling Solaris confronts us with the notion of our deepest secrets and fears become real. The more Kris attempts to aid her colleagues, the more Solaris pushes back. Heading into London following engagements in Australia and Edinburgh, prepare yourself to be launched headlong into the philosophical and extra terrestrial nightmare posed by this exciting new show!

it takes all of ten seconds to be in its generous embrace...It calls for quicksilver, charismatic acting and singing. It gets it from this versatile cast. It's an evening that, frankly, gets everything right.
