About OUT OF THIS WORLD

OUT OF THIS WORLD is genre-defying action packed theatre from acclaimed writer and director Mark Murphy. Set within a world of projected film and animation, it combines his signature mix of ground breaking aerial choreography, explosive special effects and emotionally raw storytelling in a show that is both intense psychological thriller and heart-rending medical drama.

After a decade away making major, international civic shows and global sporting ceremonies, Mark Murphy excitingly returns the stage to tell the story of a woman’s woozy descent through the layers of anesthesia into the depths of a medically induced coma. Once safely cocooned, her crashed imagination takes over the show - creating a vivid inward cinema in which she is forced reevaluate her life. But after discovering a shocking revelation and with the medical team moving in for the kill, she must escape her subterranean safe house in a very real fight for life.
