Filled with school riots, first loves, beached whales, cinema, space and sex, the play tells the story of Yonni (Tom Ross-Williams), an orthodox, Jewish teenager, who sneaks out over the Sabbath and causes a world of trouble. As the night unfolds Yonni takes us on a journey into the very depths of the solar systems as he navigates his own feelings of angst and rebellion. Set against a rising tide of anti-Semitism, Yonni pulls us into a colourful world that spans the entire universe; a world away from his overbearing mother and distant father, away from the stresses of school and 'shul' and 'shabbat'. Into the arms of Adam; the cheeky, older boy who catches his eye and leads him astray.
