Captain’s Log, Stardate (whatever).
A star-bound journey that looks at mental health and the stories we tell ourselves when we feel most alone.
Winner of the First Fortnight Award at the Dublin Fringe Festival 2018 this piece takes us on a journey with a lone astronaut as they hurtle through the cosmos on a one-way mission to the edge of the universe. She’s looking for a light in the dark. The source of a signal.
Traversing time and space, isolation and uncertainty, her quest to find hope will bring her to the brink of the abyss.
An exploration of fact, (science) fiction and the spaces in between.
Created in association with Corn Exchange Theatre Company and Mermaid Arts Centre. Supported by UCD through the inaugural UCD Dramsoc Company-in- Residence Award.

“spectacular, witty, fascinating and captivating… In short, Infinity is exceptional.”
Emma Plotkin, Fringe Review, Must See Show
“The piece is very open about the problems of modern life and how anxiety and inner turmoil can take hold. Nessa talks on the subject
with an honestly that is impressive… [INFINITY is] an impressive analogy for the solitude and remoteness that we can experience in our daily lives.”
