TEAM Production Placement Opportunity on Mission Control!

Placement Opportunity 

NTW TEAM is offering a production placement opportunity on Mission Control, NTW’s co-production with Hijinx.

What is Mission Control?

Hijinx & National Theatre Wales 
Directed by Kully Thiarai & Ben Pettitt-Wade,
and created with Seiriol Davies

Half a century after the first moon landing, Mission Control explores the dark side of the moon.

Performed by a cast including professional neurodivergent and learning-disabled actors, this immersive spectacle will re-create the atmosphere of fear, paranoia and optimism that led to two great powers believing they had to be the first to land a man on the moon. A brand new production examining the nature of truth, propaganda, espionage, manipulation and the necessity and redemptive power of myths.

Check the NTW website for more details.
