From ‘Idle Discourse’, the company that brought you The Chainsaw Manicure, comes a brand new play. Based on true events, and untold stories, these are the Tales from Star City.

The Soviet Union. 1967. The Space Race is at its height. One woman, Polina Semyenova, is at the centre of it all. She is the listener.

Hidden away in the pithily named ‘Closed Military Townlet No. 1’, Polina looks back on her dreams of being part of the great Communist movement, during one of the most dramatic decades of the Cold War.

Join Polina as she reaches for the stars, and journeys through some of the brightest and darkest moments of the Space Race.

The performance is one hour and twenty minutes long
