Stasis by Emily Holyoake at the White Bear Theatre

Entering their fifth anniversary year Encompass Productions present the world premiere of Stasis at the White Bear Theatre, Kennington for two weeks from 14th April 2015.

How far are you willing to go to say you’re sorry?
Stowaway Ren is on a Union spacecraft. Mission uncertain. What is for sure is that she shouldn’t be there. With the whole crew in stasis and only a hologram and the ship’s computer for company, Ren must cope with isolation and depleting oxygen whilst trying to find her way home.

An intimate and bold new vision from Emily Holyoake and Encompass Productions, Stasis is a thrilling science fiction drama with a ‘spellbinding narrative saturated with imagination, sincerity, and humour’ (Impact – preview).
