So here’s T-Minus, my first attempt at an original sci-fi script. Whilst certainly quite rocky in some places (it is a first draft!) I hope you can enjoy it!
In the year 2028, scientists predicted that a massive solar flare would take place in 2142, pretty much wiping out the human population. To counteract this, they developed pods that could harness the solar radiation and launch into outer space. The pods would then travel to Mars, where humanity would start afresh. The play takes place in 2142, and starts with Earth’s final hour. We focus on one particular pod filled with people from many different classes. Tensions are high and the pressure is mounting as the countdown brings them ever closer to the end of the world.
