Gravity Guts

Date: 24 Aug 2019

Gravity Guts tells the story of teenager Sophia as she attempts to follow her dream of being an astronaut.

She loves sci-fi because her dad thinks it’s cool, she’s obsessed with space travel and her hero is Sigourney Weaver from Alien. She just needs to pass the medical, get through the entrance exam, and ace the physical fitness test.

She knows heaps about space and she can do a Rubik’s cube in under three minutes so it should all be easy, right? If she can just block out the sound of her dad drinking in the next room, she might be able to pull it off.

In this joyful all-woman show written by Sophia Simmons, Sophia explores the big ideas that have alluded human kind since the beginning of the universe; like what exactly is a Quasar? What happens inside a black hole? And how do you find your voice in a vacuum?

A playful blend of autobiography, creative nonfiction and science, it’s the story of a girl who just wants to break free from her father’s orbit, but first needs to build up the guts.
