About the show

Immerse yourself in this epic 1960s pulp sci-fi adventure. A scientist has uncovered a mysterious alien artefact on the surface of the Moon. He creates an avatar copy of an explorer and sends them to the Moon, while the real explorer on earth goes into sensory deprivation. The copy explorer dies repeatedly trying to find a way through the artefact.

Join their investigation on the Eclipse Archive website and solve puzzles to unlock archival footage and images that will help you prepare for the culminative experience of this extraordinary project: a live mission to the Moon.  

Using stunning retro design values, Lunacy is directed by NIDA Directing alumni and innovative multi-media writer Pierce Wilcox.
