ABOUT the play

 

solarplexus is A sci-fi comedy about one woman in her quest

to stop the apocalypse with a pedal-powered bicycle.

Standing in her way are her delusional father,

her corporate sellout brother,

and the ominous tech mogul who just might have

created the problem in the first place.

We are proud to announce that Solarplexus has been accepted

to perform at ZOO Venues in this summer's

Edinburgh Festival Fringe. 

 

To make this exciting opportunity happen, we'll need your help!

 

We plan to raise the necessary funding through

a combination of crowdfunding, environmental grants,

and corporate contributions.
