Synopsis


On a space station orbiting Solaris, three scientists have made contact with a new planet.


Sent from earth to investigate reports of abnormal activity on-board, Kris Kelvin arrives to find one crew member dead and two who are seeing things that cannot be explained.


When her dead lover appears to her, it seems she too has fallen victim to the mystery of this strange planet.


Should she return to reality, or is this her chance to turn back time?


Have the crew been studying Solaris - or has it been studying them?


This psychological thriller asks who we are when we're forced to confront our deepest fears.


David Greig adapts Stanislaw Lem's cult science fiction novel for the stage.


This international co-production arrives at the Lyric direct from The Royal Lyceum, Edinburgh and Melbourne, Australia.
