A cabaret that takes place on a space station that drifts in a far-off galaxy. Has it been forgotten about? A suitcase of dolls is opened and the space station residents take on new identities. Meanwhile the distant earth attempts to heal. But is it all a dream? An entertaining and surreal look into the despair of isolation. Original songs by Third year Humber students.
