The Summer of Sol

‘Welcome to BA1, the year is 3983, the 40th century. Our tale is set in a region that has had many names over the Millenia. In the 21st century – the electronic era – it was known as Bath. Before even then, in the 1st century, it was known as Aqua Suils, at the height of the Roman empire. Today, BA1 is a popular residence for the elderly…’


The show revolves around the Forces Of The Solar System – you may have heard of them before in the form of the Old Roman Gods or the Planets. The story is about an evil force Nox, who wants to destroy the sun. Old members of The Forces: Jupiter, Neptune and Mercury, with the help of a human called Summer, go on a journey to seek out the force of the sun, Sol, bring Nox to justice and save the world!

We bespokely created this exclusively shadow puppetry piece for the Bath Comic and Sci-Fi Expo that took place in September 2013, and are looking for new venues to expand the story. Get in touch if you are interested!
