Check your oxygen, adjust your space-suit and buckle up for the biggest mission of your life! Following five-star rave reviews, One Small Step returns to the egg for a fast, furious and full throttled trip to the moon.

Recounting history’s greatest adventure, the race between the United States and the Soviet Union to send the first man to the moon, two actors magically conjure up more than 40 characters with the aid of simple household objects. An inventive, funny and surprisingly moving, action-packed show that crams 50 years of history into 60 minutes!

★★★★★ “It’s hard to imagine a play fuelled by a more profound and spellbinding sense of sheer wonder” The Scotsman
