The Distance Between Stars




Written by Steve Timms


Elliot is on the mend from a nervous collapse. Big sister Helen worries about him; she wants Elliot to stop eating junk food, and start participating in the world. Daisy and Elliot were patients in the same hospital. Daisy wants to let go of her troubled past. Lonely neighbour Mr Birzoni wants a love affair. All are looking for something to believe in. Just when life starts looking up, Elliot’s obsessions steer him in an unexpected and dangerous direction.


The Distance Between Stars is a new play about grief, extra-terrestrials and ginger custard. From the writer of Temp/Casual.
