It’s 2113 and Martian princesses Yasmin and Pippa are about to be initiated in the man-eating rituals of their cursed planet. On the menu are Jaxxon McGhee and Largs Lido, two unsuspecting jobless 21-year-olds, newly arrived from an overcrowded and cruel Earth. But when Yasmin and Jaxxon rebel against their destiny they trigger an interplanetary crisis, with the Martian Queen baying for blood and the President of Earth looking to indulge his own appetite for destruction.

Romance, rock’n’roll and rudeness collide in this epic musical tale of star-crossed lovers thrown together by fate. But in a solar system that doesn’t care as long as there is food on the table, who will end up inside who?

Songs by BAFTA winning composer and member of Belle and Sebastian, Mick Cooke. Book by Gordon Davidson and Alan Wilkinson.
