Heartfelt pop sci-fi adventure
Remember when there were heroes and villains and love conquered all and everything was gonna be okay? We do.
Only You Can Save Us is an explosion of optimism featuring actual explosions live on stage. It has a hero called Captain Hero, and a villain called John Villaine.
Only You Can Save Us is a theatrical adventure that’s part retro sci-fi homage, part cabaret of self-dissection. It’s a collision of B-movies and utopian science fiction and romantic comedies that’ll wrench something meaningful out of all the gunfights and kissing.
It’s ecstatic open-heart surgery on all the things you like, performed by a fake doctor dancing to the sound of laser guns. It’s going to stop the bad guy, find true love, and save the world… or die trying.
Who can save us? Only you.
WARNING: This production contains dancing and space bats.
