Solaris Tickets

London Play
Sci-fi thriller Solaris at the Lyric Hammersmith for 1 month!
On a space station orbiting Solaris, three scientists have made contact with a new planet. Sent from earth to investigate reports of abnormal activity on-board, Kris Kelvin arrives to find one crew member dead and two who are seeing things that cannot be explained. When her dead lover appears to her, it seems she too has fallen victim to the mystery of this strange planet. Should she return to reality, or is this her chance to turn back time? Have the crew been studying Solaris – or has it been studying them? This psychological thriller asks who we are when we’re forced to confront our deepest fears. David Greig adapts Stanisław Lem’s cult science fiction novel for the stage. Our international co-production arrives at the Lyric direct from The Royal Lyceum, Edinburgh and Melbourne, Australia.

    The play was okay, and acting was good. But it didn't leave very deep impression. Changing the sex of the main character was a good twist though.

    Sci-Fi mystery, creative set and use of audio-visual complements, good but not great performances, stimulating

    I was wondering how they were going to create this as a stage production but they totally pulled it off. Outstanding acting and good reversal of some of the characters from men (in the book/movie) to women. An excellent show and a must see for science fiction enthusiasts!

    The dialogue was extremely poor, the plot thin and stretched impossibly over the 2nd half. Lead gave a repetitive, unconvincing performance.

    Nice use of small stage and multiple rooms from shutters, print out from osciloscopes cracked me up though.... Acting pretty mediocre, when Sartorious says "Bye solaris" I burst out laughing it was that bad, but she was best actor overall so that says a lot. Lightning and other special effects were spot on. Stayed mostly true to the book but under elaborated on some important ideas while at the same time bombarding viewers with too many concepts that readers would have had much more time to digest.

    Solaris blew me away. The stage and sound design were both wonderful, and the story immersive, funny and thrilling the ending left me on the edge if my seat. The actors were also incredible. I loved the atmospheric tension that the play evoked, and I would strongly reccomend the play to anyone else who enjoys psychological thrillers
