One Giant Leap - Jack Studio Theatre

One Giant Leap

Preview by Lizzie Guilfoyle

ARROWS & Traps Theatre Company is presenting One Giant Leap, the (probably) fictional story of the greatest lie in history, at the Jack Studio Theatre.

Written and directed by Ross McGregor, it runs from Tuesday, July 2 to Saturday, July 27, 2019.

That’s one small step for man… Neil Armstrong.

July, 1969. Los Angeles. Edward Price is a man with problems. His ex-wife left him for a famous actor, his house has been seized by the IRS, and the sci-fi TV show he produces just got cancelled in its first season. But that’s show business for you.

Things look bleak until the CIA arrive with a suitcase of money and an offer. Edward now has five days to fake the moon landing, and pull off the greatest conspiracy in American history. If he succeeds, he’s set for life. If he fails…well…best not to think about that.

In celebration of the Fiftieth Anniversary of the Apollo 11 Moon Landing, Arrows & Traps Theatre bring their critically-acclaimed approach to a brand-new comedy set in the back streets of a Hollywood lot. One Giant Leap is about the power of having an impossible dream, realising it’s impossible, and then trying your hardest to fake it and hope no one notices.

Tickets: £16, £13 concessions. To book, call the box office on 0333 666 3366 (£1.50 fee for phone bookings only) or visit brockleyjack.co.uk/.

Time: 7.30pm (no performances on Sundays and Mondays).

Also at the Jack Studio Theatre: Happy Jack by John Godber (May 14 to May 25) and Precious Little by Madeleine George (May 29 to June 15, 2019).
