July 20, 1969. On the night of the moon landing, Chicago housewife Diana (Wendi Peters) walks out of her comfortable suburban life for no real reason. She sees the astronauts taking that great step and is struck by the realisation that some people lead exciting lives. Suddenly alone in a fast-changing world, she finds a series of unexpected encounters can turn one small step into a giant, life-changing leap.
This is a live, in-person performance running for four weeks. There will be two live-streamed performances on Saturday, 22 May at 3pm an 7.30pm (captions available for the matinee performance).
Southwark Playhouse are selling tickets for live, in-person socially distanced performances of You Are Here based on last week’s government announcements. If government guidance does not allow for live performances to go ahead with social distancing, then all performances of You Are Here will be live-streamed and ticket holders will be contacted with details on how to watch the alternative production online or obtain a refund.
