The Yonder is a wacky lo-fi, sci-fi comedy which somehow involves a threesome with a squid! It will have you fastening your seatbelts and joining the crew on a rocketing adventure into outerspace!

It is the concluding play from a series of award-winning Fringe performances such as "Asian Ghost-ery Store" and "Salty".

Presented by "Normal Children" it touches on contemporary issues of race, cultural identity and migration with madness, humour and absurdity. The character's relationships are entwined as we sense their mental and physical struggles for survival in dystopia.

The trio performers are themselves children of migrant parents- Irish, Turkish and Singaporean, respectively-Davie, Doruk and Lim, as they play a diverse cast of humans and aliens.

You soon realise you are one of their passengers aboard "The Yonder" the spaceship, departing our blue planet in search of a new home in deep space, as Earth is about to explode!

"Davie" the dominating and bossy commander of the ship, barks out orders in sparkling silver space attire, as she takes control and orders the crew around!

Tensions begin to mount between Doruk, Davie and Lim, about how deserved everybody's place on the spacecraft is. Doruk and Lim's intimate moments have the audience in laughter and mesmerised at the same time.

However, the real danger onboard the spaceship are the Space Squids. Watch how the characters deal with these slimy tentacle cephalopods is rather amusing!
