You are currently viewing Polaris


Located deep in the arctic circle, miles away from civilization, the Helvetia Research Station maps the curious recent behaviour of the north star, Polaris. Decorated journalist, Dosy, joins the research team to write an article on what life is like at the edge of the world. However, her visit takes a turn for the extraordinary when the scientists discover that something might be trying to communicate with them from the depths of the universe. Polaris is a science fiction self-written play about isolation, love, loss, and our place in a vast and unexplored universe.
