Gazing At A Distant Star

exham2

Sat 29 July 2017

For one special performance we revive the sell-out hit Gazing At A Distant Star, the show that launched the Greenwich Theatre Studio in January of this year, before transferring the production to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

Arun works in a call centre, desperately trying to save the money to go to university.

Anna trains for the 5k she never thought she wanted to run.

Karen works at a hardware store and tries to work out where it all went wrong…

Three lives intersect, three people struggle to cope with loss, to reach out and find the light beyond.

Beautifully written. Beautifully acted. Do your soul a favour and go.
Greenwich Visitor
Rowland’s dialogue sparkles with authenticity and humour... let’s hope for a West End Transfer or a tour
Carns Theatre Passion
Rowland’s writing is the dark star in this new play; her wit twinkles and slices in equal measure whilst the three actors sensitively negotiate the deliberately impersonal set...
BritishTheatre.com
"From great things to greater things... Last year I happened to see Siân Rowland’s Life Sentence performed twice at two separate new writing events and on each occasion, that monologue had been one of the highlights of the evening. Since then, Rowland has built upon Life Sentence, linking it to two other monologues to make a triptych – all related to people who go missing for various reasons. If Life Sentence was a ‘great thing’, then Gazing At A Distant Star (as it is now called with direction from James Haddrell) is assuredly ‘a greater thing’."
Breaking The Fourth Wall
Harpal Hayer... a nuanced and endearing performance. Serin Ibrahim... an ideal vessel for Rowland's writing, delivering moments of levity and pathos with expert timing
BritishTheatre.com
Emotive performances... Sian Rowland’s play is packed with surprises and not just in the plot...
