140 MILLION MILES – Edinburgh

In Plays, Regional theatre, Reviews by Thom DibdinLeave a Comment

It’s never easy to get a handle on Adam Peck’s slightly obscure new offering, 140 Million Miles, at the Traverse all week as part of the A Play A Pie and A Pint season of lunchtime theatre.

Rosie Mason and Darren Seed are near perfect as Dawn and Neil, a Bristolian couple in their early thirties, caught up in the hype and sent off to Mars on a “trip of a lifetime” to colonise the red planet. Yet the objective of that trip is never quite clear.
