Lent Week 8
The Footlights present Warp Factor by Oliver Taylor as the winner of this year's Harry Porter Prize (set up in 2003 in honour of the late Dr Harry Porter, Footlights' long-term Senior Archivist).
Warp Factor is a farcical sci-fi adventure that provides a conclusive explanation of the nature of the universe and god. Featuring a man with 500 personalities downloaded into his mind, a commander so incompetent that he extends his cryogenic hyper-sleep 3 weeks by pressing “snooze”, and a Feminid from the planet Vulvox where everyone chooses their gender (and where everyone is hence female) all taking part in the most important mission in human history, Warp Factor is the most thrilling interstellar action comedy on this plane of dimensional existence.
