ABOUT THE SHOW
"Imagine Doctor Who with the production values of the 60s, the colour scheme of the 70s and the joyous insanity of the 80s. Drag that into the 21st century and tell it to ignore all the good bits, get captured by some diehard fans and dance around for an hour, and eventually you're left with Space Doctor.”
Will Dalrymple (Writer/Creator)
Originally written and conceived by writer/comedian Will Dalrymple, Space Doctor enjoyed a run at Canal Cafe Theatre in February and will go on to play at the Edinburgh Fringe’s world famous venue Gilded Balloon this August. For this Brighton Fringe run, writer Will Dalrymple has given the script a complete revamp, throwing everything that 50 years of glorious TV sci-fi has to offer.
Featuring some faces familiar to StraightUp followers alongside some exciting new discoveries, the cast of Space Doctor have already been rehearsing their socks off. The show's time travel elements make rehearsing the puzzle-box of a script something of a challenge, one which this talented troupe have risen to with aplomb!

We are also fortunate enough to be joined in our space odyssey by a sublimely skilled crew. Having worked wonders with Tristram Shandy last November, Jake Wood will be throwing light into space as our technician. Jo Kelen has been sorting props and costumes, fashioning everything from giant geese to great, green space monsters. Finally, Jamie Fenton has been hard at work, strapped to his synthesiser, composing hilarious music for use in the show. We can't wait to show you what their combined efforts have produced (hint: it's something truly special)!
Unless, like Space Doctor, you too have a time machine, you have no time to waste: get your tickets now before they're gone! TICKET LINK:
