A spacecraft approaches Mars.


They are The First.


Back on Earth, two writers compose two speeches.


One if the mission succeeds. And another ...


When things start to go wrong aboard just days away from the Red Planet, astronauts Rose and Simeon are faced with the prospect of being more alone than any two humans in history.


Meanwhile, experienced political hack Marcus and celebrated screenwriter Aisha must find the words to summarise a feat bigger than words, and a disaster that may never happen.


From writer Barry McStay (Vespertilio - Show of the Week, VAULT 2019) and director Emily Jenkins (Bobby And Amy - Show of the Week, VAULT 2019), THE FIRST is a new play about tragedy, heroism and imperfection.
