Strange Orbits

Suitable for Age 16 +

‘There’s none on this or any other planet I trust so much as you.’ 

‘I feel the same… No single soul does know me like you do.’


Lily (an engineer) and her husband Jasper (a tech billionaire) have spent more than a decade building their life together. But on the night of their tenth wedding anniversary, a secret long hidden shakes the foundation of their relationship. Now they must attempt to find common ground through urgent discussion about the climate crisis, misogyny, and the impact of colonisation. 


Strange Orbits’ is a debut play by Carly Hendricks, a former SpaceX engineer. Inspired by personal experience, classical theatre, and cinematic sci-fi, it explores the limits of romantic love when misaligned values are revealed. Passion, ambition, idealism, and ego all play a role as Lily and Jasper navigate tectonic shifts in their assumed reality. As their professional and personal lives intertwine, we get a glimpse into the privileged lives of technologists doing what they believe is best for the greater good.
