Solaris

Lyric Hammersmith, London

Sorry, this show is not currently booking.

Stanisław Lem’s cult science fiction novel is brought to life on stage in a new adaptation by David Greig, with direction by Matthew Lutton.

An epic psychological thriller set in space, Solaris forces audiences to confront their fears and question what lies beyond our blue plant.

Solaris is presented by Lyric Hammersmith Theatre, Malthouse Theatre Melbourne and the Royal Lyceum Theatre Edinburgh.

Solaris is booking from 10 October 2019 until 2 November 2019 at the Lyric Hammersmith, London.

WHAT’S THE STORY?

On a space station orbiting Solaris, three scientists have made contact with a new planet.

Sent from earth to investigate reports of abnormal activity on-board, Kris Kelvin arrives to find one crew member dead and two who are seeing things that cannot be explained.

When her dead lover appears to her, it seems she too has fallen victim to the mystery of this strange planet. Should she return to reality, or is this her chance to turn back time?

Have the crew been studying Solaris – or has it been studying them? This psychological thriller asks who we are when we’re forced to confront our deepest fears.

WHO’S IN IT? SOLARIS CAST

The cast of Solaris will feature Polly Frame, Jade Ogugua, Keegan Joyce, Fode Simbo and Hugo Weaving (in a filmed performance).
