Ambitious, Original, Slow, Relevant, Dated

See it if you like budget sci fi with primitive costumes, no sets, episodic adventures simple plots & morality reminiscent of black & white Dr Who.

Don't see it if you prefer polished production values, character driven plots and complex ideas.

Ambitious, Play has potential: with some shaping, this could be a great play, Political drama with a sci-fi twist, Weird with a capital "w", Enthusiastic cast

See it if You want to see an emerging playwright-while the play has flaws, there's a clear & unique voice. You're willing to go on a weird journey.

Don't see it if You don't like sci-fi stories. You don't like plays with a political viewpoint. You want traditional playwriting & staging.

“With just seven cast members and modest stage props, the story was still told without limitation. As a member of the audience, I was taken to another place...Director Andreas Robertz...does a great job embracing a diversity of voices in this production, with an openness to taking a risk and trying something completely different...Playful and creative, but also painfully true to the realities faced by millions every day…‘Exile’ emanates a powerful story with a creative edge.”
