Orphan Planet

“Did anyone ever ask you...when you were a child? ‘What do you want to be when you grow up?’. See, I never had an answer. Did anyone here ever want to be an Astronaut?” 

Danny is thinking about Space. Danny is thinking about Messages. Danny is thinking about Death. In 2014, Danny was given a box from across time. Now It’s time to see what is inside. What would you want to be remembered by? 

Orphan Planet is an autobiographical theatre piece combining real stories, once lost/now found family footage and space exploration. All to try and answer the question of how to live with grief. 

Written and performed by Danny Laine, after examining a box of his late father’s possessions, in 2024 the show will be at Barnstaple Fringe, before embarking on a South West tour.
