After a season at last year’s Edinburgh Festival Fringe, from Cosmic Shambles Network in collaboration with Footprint Theatre—the play’s creators—Signals is on a debut UK tour.

Set in the control room of a remote radio telescope, it’s a comedy that follows two radio astronomers and their search for alien life over the course of a number of years.

It explores human connection, isolation, loneliness and how it feels to spend a lifetime searching for the intangible.

It’s at Waterside Arts Centre, Sale, October 12.
