Diary of a Martian Beekeeper

It's now 2036.  

Niamh is on Mars and​ a ​member​ of Crew 173, on a long duration mission to investigate new ways of growing food in this arid foreign land. As their 2 year mission comes to an end, one crucial experiment remains for Niamh. But will she overcome her personal struggles or put the whole crew and the mission in danger?

A highly visual exploration of future interplanetary human exploration, Shaw and her creative team create a new world order, reminding us of the power of the collective, the fragility of the solitary human and the united will behind all major breakthroughs)​


Because we may one day leave the cradle of Earth, but we will always be human.

Th​e world premiere of Niamh Shaw’s next theatre show about her dream to go to Space has been i​nspired by Elon Musks grand design for a future interplanetary civilisation, testimonies of ESA employees, and Niamh's personal space journey.
