Rocket Post

Tuesday 3 October 2017 @ 7:00 pm

MacRobert Memorial Hall, Tarland

Tuesday 3 October 2017


The National Theatre of Scotland

Suitable 6+ 

Written and directed by Lewis Hetherington with collaborators Ailie Cohen, MJ McCarthy and Kane Husbands.

Based on a true story.

July, 1934. The Western Isles.  A small crowd stand on a beach and watch in amazement. Eccentric German scientist Gerhard Zucker tells them he wants to bring the world together. The future is about communication. The future is about connection. The future is… ROCKETS!

Specifically, a Rocket packed full of letters to send from Scarp to Harris. The crowd gasp as he lights the fuse and the rocket lifts up into the sky and then… explodes.

His vision for the bright new future of communication disintegrates into thousands of tiny pieces that fall through the sky like snow. Mission fail. Return to sender. Back to the drawing board Gerhard.

He has three days to turn his luck around. Will he make his rockets fly? Will he bring people together?

A fantastically fun new show for everyone aged six and over, Rocket Post is a raucous mix of songs and storytelling. Full of humour, heart and hope for the future, it’s a tale of miscommunication, vaulting ambition and the joyous discoveries that happen when everything goes wrong.
