Mercy and the Wild Sea
  • Edinburgh Fringe

A sensational, original rock-opera experience set in the 34th century, this show brings together live rock music, dramatic performance and a spectacular movie created by award-winning BetterFeelingFilms. Set in the beautiful cut-throat galaxy of the online game Elite:Dangerous, we follow the journey of disgraced Commander Mercy, vocalist Corinne Lucy, sounds like the love child of Joni Mitchell and Karen Carpenter (Robert Rosenberg, Trinifold). Brian Portsmouth (whose stage roles have included Alan Turing at the Haymarket), portrays Alexander Selcraig, long-retired Federation Intelligence Officer on an extraordinary personal mission: 100 years later... Is it too late?
