It's forty million miles. Two and a half years, yeah? It takes a radiowave - right? Travelling at the speed of fucking light, 13 minutes, to get back from Mars. So . . . if anything goes wrong - anything at all - out there . . . they're really . . . they're on their own, you know? When Earth is the loneliest planet, where else is there to go? Paul is a specialist in cognitive behaviour, tasked with designing a twenty-year mission to Mars. Daniel is a husband and new father struggling with the reality of marriage and the monotony of everyday life. Nat is a twin sister, disillusioned by the world's obsession with space travel and sorry that she didn't say goodbye. And Amy asks a lot of questions . . . Following his critically acclaimed The Empire at the Royal Court, and The Swan at the National Theatre, DC Moore's Another Place is a compelling play about our obsession to uncover the secrets of space, and the tragedy of what we leave behind. Full of dark humour, razor-sharp wit and intricately portrayed characters, this is a gripping play about what it means to be human. Another Place received its world premiere at the Theatre Royal Plymouth on 6 November 2014.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Moore really gets inside what it feels like to have made a mess of your life before it's even under way. -- Dominic Cavendish * Daily Telegraph *
DC Moore's debut is a searing and uncomfortable probing of prejudice in all its forms. * Independent *
DC Moore is a very special talent and the perfect writer to give voice to a generation of young people for whom the first step on the career path is to realise that there no longer is one. * Channel 4 Head of Drama, Piers Wenge *
Moore pulls it all off via some brilliantly raucous comic writing. From the bewildered squaddies of The Empire to the nihilistic office worker in Honest up-and-comer Moore has a killer eye for the neuroses of the British everybloke, which he lovingly amplifies, exaggerates and dissects * Time Out *
It casts its coolly intelligent gaze towards the future of our planet and out into deep space, while posing fundamental questions about human existence . . . the writing is engrossing and spikily stylish . . . the play reverberates around the mind long afterwards. * The Times *
