Based on true events and untold stories, these are the Tales from Star City. The Soviet Union, 1967. The Space Race is at its height. One woman, Polina Semyenova, is at the centre of it all. She is the listener. Hidden away in ‘Closed Military Townlet No. 1’ (later to become the eponymous Star City), Polina looks back on her dreams of being part of the great Communist movement during one of the most dramatic decades of the Cold War. Join Polina as she reaches for the stars and journeys through some of the brightest and darkest moments of the Space Race. Tales from Star City is touring nationally after a five star run at the Chiswick Playhouse in 2018, and a transfer to the King’s Head Theatre in 2019.
