Intronauts at Theatre Royal

Intronauts at Theatre Royal

Green Ginger's new show Intronauts comes to Theatre Royal Tuesday 29 January – Saturday 2 February. It propels audiences into a microscopic world, taking them on a fantastical journey deep into the inner reaches of the human body. Intronauts is a madcap story that sheds light on advancing technology and brings us face to face with big syringes and a tiny submarine.

 

In a future not so very far away, miniaturized human workers represent a breakthrough in medical science. This intrepid corps of caretakers acts as a workforce designed to be an essential part of any health care regime. Intronauts are personal cleaners, injected into the human body to carry out essential maintenance in order to keep a level of health and hygiene beyond compare.

 

But what happens if your cleaner discovers your dirty laundry? And how much do you actually want to know about what goes on deep inside your body?

 

Taking its cue from classic sci-fi movies and fuelled by absurd visual comedy and innovative puppetry, Intronauts offers an intoxicating inner body experience that is out of this world. This is the trip of a lifetime that really gets under the skin. Nothing could possibly go wrong …
