Sci-fi Classic Solaris has UK Stage Premiere
Posted by geeksyndicate on December 3, 2012
The UK premiere of Solaris is being performed at the courtyard Theatre until the 8th December 2012.
Solaris is essentially a love story which takes a philosophical look at the human condition and our almost unerring desire to repeat mistakes over and over. It takes place on a space station on the far side of the galaxy and the setting brings with it all the mystery and beauty you would expect. Lem’s focus on humanity within the story, is so unusual for this genre but it is what makes this one of the greatest Science Fiction books of all time.
Stanislaw Lem was a Polish Science Fiction writer who’s career spanned the 1960’s & 70’s and is a national hero in Poland. The novel has been previously adapted into two feature films, one by the Russian director Andrei Tarkovsky in 1972 and again thirty years later by Steven Soderbergh staring George Clooney.
This new play version, adapted especially for stage by Dimitry Devdariani, will be a completely fresh view of Lem’s novel.
