P o l a r i s (a tragedy expansion pack)
P o l a r i s (a tragedy expansion pack) is a sci-fi memory play that follows Polaris, an astronaut who arrives on an alien planet while searching for his kidnapped brother. But as Polaris falls deeper into the unearthly maze, filled with traps and puzzles that seem, somehow, to be drawn from his own childhood, the true human reality of his loss and pain begins to materialize—and all the imagination and fantasy in the world can no longer mask the truth of his heartbreak.
This production contains language surrounding depression and suicide. Strobe lighting effects will be used and there will be sudden, loud explosion sounds.
