12 – 30 September 2017 @ The Blue Room Theatre.
Presented by Second Chance Theatre.

Soviet Russia. 1957. The Space Race.
The unsung heroes of the Soviet space program outsmart the competition on a daily basis – breaking records and making history. A lone flight technician dreams of reaching the stars. However, as she climbs closer to success, the price of victory and the sins of a nation reveal themselves.

From the award-winning team at Second Chance Theatre (Between Solar Systems, Coincidences at the End of Time), Laika is a new staged radio play based on historical events that dares you to dream. Live foley transforms the theatre into launch pads, snow-covered Siberia, and even the depths of space.

How far would you go to achieve your dream?
