Information

A brand-new pop musical telling the 200,000-year love story between Earth and Humanity.

From first sparks to power couple status to infidelities of astronomical proportions, the universe has never seen a match like this. When things turn toxic, can Earth and Humanity still see a future together?

With a high-energy pop score and razor-sharp lyrics, THIS IS A LOVE STORY shines a fresh light on the climate crisis and our relationship with the planet.

What is a workshop performance?

Workshop performances are your first look at new musical theatre in the making. A chance to discover new talent and play your part in developing a show.
