Written and Directed by Michael Gow

‘She’s not plastic, or tin. She’s here to be one of us. She is one of us.’

Once upon a time… there was a parallel universe. What happens when the man from outer space turns out to be the girl next door? A play about alien contact, Goldilocks is a new work by Michael Gow, based on the famous paradox posed by physicist Enrico Fermi: ‘if there’s so much intelligent life in the universe, where is everybody?’ Part fairy-tale, part sci-fi experience, the production uses film and video as the story-telling method to explore questions of life on planet Earth. Maybe what’s on Earth is always what you end up with?
