The Navigators' new drama follows Constantine, a cyborg, and Nora, a genetically enhanced female explorer, as they begin an endless voyage across the uncharted universe.

When Nora goes against Constantine’s wishes and visits a strange new planet, she’s suddenly infected with an incurable disease. To delay losing the only person he loves to a gruesome death, Constantine takes it upon himself to suspend them both in cryo-freeze. Thus the pair begins a kind of chemical-induced time warp spanning millions of years as they wait for the universe to find a cure for Nora’s illness.

Theatre is Easy

“Poynton’s malleability of time within the vastness of her universe should hook sci-fi fans even if Potter’s scenic design and lighting relinquishes the sleekness Hollywood would’ve wished for the titular ship….The non-human characters seem to be more compelling than human Nora…Regardless, Poynton’s universe deserves growth…Poynton’s interrogations are ones that have stood the test of time inside her narrative as well as in art. They deserve a larger stage (on the page and off).” Full Review

Great acting, Thought-provoking, Must see, Riveting, Great writing

See it if you want to be thoroughly entertained. This feminist, sci-fi, romance questioned what it means to be human. I was captivated the entire time
