An Out-of-this-World Comedy Drama by Gemma Owen-Kendall
Directed by John Hewer
Louth Playgoers and Hambledon Productions have teamed up to present “HIM”, a sci-fi, rom-com by new Lincolnshire playwright Gemma Owen-Kendall.
“HIM” was the winner at Scratch Night 2017 and has been through a rigorous development process which will make its stage debut in June this year at Louth’s Riverhead Theatre.
This community project, directed by John Hewer, tells an incredible boy-meets-girl story of Daniel, a would-be scientist who’s temping as a University professor to spread the word that there is intelligent life in outer space. He’s hopelessly devoted to his old school friend Kim, who is climbing the career ladder working at the Ministry of Defence.
She’s not really looking for love. He doesn’t really want to confess that he’s an alien.
This sci-fi comedy drama premiered at the Riverhead Theatre in June 2018.
