Examining domestic abuse, isolation and the friendship between two sci-fi loving teenagers stuck in a rural mining community on the verge of collapse, Terrestrial is a new work by South Australian playwright Fleur Kilpatrick.

The play was commissioned by State Theatre Company South Australia (STCSA) and was presented as the company’s 2018 Education program production, touring to the likes of Roxby Downs, Port Lincoln and Whyalla in May in partnership with Regional Arts SA. The production is also presented as part of STCSA’s 2018 mainstage production.
