Rocket Post is an extraordinary true story for families, packed with songs, charm and humour. Filmed specially for the Screen Machine at performances on Harris, this is a ground-breaking collaboration with National Theatre of Scotland and The Space.

July, 1934. The Western Isles. A small crowd stand on a beach and watch in amazement. Eccentric German scientist Gerhard Zucker tells them he wants to bring the world together. The future is about communication. The future is about connection. The future is… ROCKETS!

Specifically, a Rocket packed full of letters to send from Scarp to Harris. The crowd gasp as he lights the fuse and the rocket lifts up into the sky and then… explodes.

His vision for the bright new future of communication disintegrates into thousands of tiny pieces that fall through the sky like snow. Mission fail. Return to sender. Back to the drawing board Gerhard.

He has three days to turn his luck around. Will he make his rockets fly? Will he bring people together?

A fantastically fun new show for everyone aged six and over, Rocket Post is a raucous mix of songs and storytelling. Full of humour, heart and hope for the future, it’s a tale of miscommunication, vaulting ambition and the joyous discoveries that happen when everything goes wrong.

Rocket Post: A National Theatre of Scotland Production.

Stage Version: Written and directed by Lewis Hetherington with collaborators Ailie Cohen and MJ McCarthy, and movement director Kane Husbands.

Screen Version: Directed by Donald MacInnes
