ABOUT THE PLAY
Told through a deceptive sci-fi lens, Pilgrims tackles the difficult subject matter of emotional and sexual trauma. Two strangers (and a humanoid robot), forced to quarantine in a space ship cabin for 100 days, must learn to cope with the brutal trauma they each experienced on earth before attempting a new life on an unknown planet.
This production leaned into the psychological nature of the script, creating an intimate and disturbing storytelling experiment for a small 99 seat audience.
