The Sleeping Trees by Rosie Powell

SCI-FIThe show follows the intergalactic journey of the unlikeliest of heroes, happy-go-lucky farmer Charlie Sprog. At a time where the ancient planet of Plutopia rules the galaxy, Charlie is dragged from his quiet home planet and given one very simple mission: SAVE THE UNIVERSE FROM TOTAL DESTRUCTION. Accompanied by an inter-cosmic live score like no other, the Sleeping Trees invite you to join them on a journey into the deep and infinite unknown. So strap on your helmets, jump into your space suits, complete the necessary six years of training required by NASA to fly into space* AND THEN, grab yourself a ticket to the show.

Directed by Tom Parry (Pappy’s BBC3).
Music composed by Adam Hutchison (The Physics House Band)
