Synopsis: 
Based on the 200AD comic from Alan Moore and Ian Gibson about a regular girl who wants to go out, explore the universe and do everything

I saw this play last year at The Lass O'Gowrie and loved it so leapt at the chance to see it again. There had been some cast changes (the Glyph I fell in love with was played by someone else... I fell in love again) and they seemed to add a prologue I don't remember from before which shed more light on how Halo came to be living with Brina at the start but I'm not sure it added anything to the story really.

If you get a chance to see this production, I highly recommend it (again).
