What's on in Glasgow Life
DIG presents - Mark Murphy's V-TOL: Out Of This World
Friday 19 & Saturday 20 May, 7.30pm
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, original text and explosive special effects in a show that is both intense psychological thriller and heart-rending medical drama.
This is the story of a woman’s woozy descent 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 reviews her life. But after discovering a shocking truth and with the medical team moving in for the kill, she must escape her subterranean safe house in a very real fight for life.
"April is promising to be the coolest month, with the arrival of Out of This World – an edge-of-the-seat cross between an intense psychological thriller and heart-rending medical drama, created by Mark Murphy whose skill and imagination lay behind the closing ceremony of Glasgow’s Commonwealth Games 2014."
