REVIEW: One Giant Leap at the Brockley Jack Theatre

“That’s one small step for man…” Neil Armstrong.

If you are familiar with the Arrows and Traps theatre company, you may associate them with vivid, dramatic and sometimes scary theatre, but this time, in “One Giant Leap”, expect laughs and slightly whacky and bonkers content! It never ceases to amaze me how this repertory company keeps coming back with new innovative shows multiple times a year.

This is the (probably!) fictional story of a TV studio in Hollywood in 1969 whose main alien-related show has just been cancelled after only one season. Its director Edward Price is on the edge, having to work with actors who are too demanding for his taste and a co-producer who happens to also be his ex-wife. One day, a CIA agent arrives and offers him a ton of money to create a fake moon landing. Indeed, because of the pressure up on the moon, cameras wouldn’t be able to actually film the landing. But how is Edward going to convince his team to produce this kind of footage with everything falling apart around him?
