Are you more loyal to who you love, or what you love?

The Atom Room is a thrilling new love story, set within a highly-advanced virtual reality system where couples 'meet' and 'interact' in ways so believable, it might as well be reality itself. Imagine an ultra-modern version of Skype, but you can touch, visit, feel, and love.

Sarah and Danny live in Wellington, 150 years in the future where climate change, tectonic shifts and nuclear accidents have wrecked the environment. Sarah secures an engineering job to create a new colony on Mars, leaving Danny behind on Earth. Can their long-distance relationship survive? Is the Atom Room their only hope?

This is the world premiere of a romantic and thrilling new play by award-winning Wellington playwright Philip Braithwaite, featuring new music from electronic music icons Minuit.

Starring Harriet Prebble (The Father), Taylor Hall (Filthy Rich, 800 Words), and Claire Waldron (King Lear), with the stellar design team of Ian Harman, Jennifer Lal, and Raylene Beals (Media Ray), led by director Lyndee-Jane Rutherford (La Casa Azul - Frida Kahlo, Hand to God).

And a first for New Zealand: Get to the theatre early to experience a unique pre-show virtual reality (VR) prologue in the theatre foyer, designed by Tony St George of Polytronik Studios especially for the show.

Ticket holders for The Atom Room play can witness a vision of Wellington 150 years in the future that will leave you breathless and shocked at the sight of what has become of our beautiful city, as imagined by the world of The Atom Room.

The Atom Room is proudly supported by Shoreline Partners. The pre-show foyer VR prologue is supported by Hell Pizza.
