Peckham Fringe: Is There Work On Mars?

24th & 25th May

About the show

Can an Asian with ADHD and dyscalculia pass Elon Musk’s Mars Immigration Test? Set in a dystopian future of space colonisation, ’Is There Work on Mars?’ rants about many things: being an Asian who is innately horrible at maths, ableist education systems, living in the diaspora and ridiculous immigration requirements. Feeling like an outcast everywhere she goes, the neurodiverse Chinese woman desperately finds herself at SpaceX’s absurd testing lab in an attempt to move to Mars.
