‘You’re more of a St. Peter. You guard the gates of heaven.’
In a future plagued by the realities of climate change, the last hope for humanity is to start again - but securing a spot on the Rapture shuttle bound for Mars is no easy ride, and the controversial company behind it is divisive and deeply secretive.
Loyal employee Eric is the man burdened with the grim responsibility of deciding who gets a ticket to the red planet, and who gets left behind. On the anniversary of his father’s death, a family dinner turns into a deadly ambush for a space on the ark.
Rapture stars Rebecca Hunt (Werther), Arno van Zelst (Early Stages), Huw Landauer (Pictland), and Aidan Parsons (The Dig). The production is directed by Sebastião Marques Lopes and produced by Beth Graham.
