“The sky itself seemed to be on fire with the expectation of the night. The night I finally understood why storms, and not stars, are named after people.”
Ares is a one-woman future-drama about black holes, motherhood, grief, and Alice – the astrophysicist heading the first manned mission to Mars.
As a woman in a male-dominated industry, Alice is no stranger to struggle. But the biggest conflict of her life arises when she must decide whether to send her astronaut husband on this dangerous mission, knowing he may never return.
Ares is the first full-length play by Katie Granger. It has been a long-term collaboration with actor Andrea Hall and director Emma Harris, in combination with creative producer Jessy Parker Humphreys.
