Third Angel's show 600 People, part of festival A Future Fantastic at Theatre Deli, Sheffield

Meanwhile, back in 2006, co-artistic director of Sheffield-based theatre company Third Angel, Alexander Kelly, struck up a conversation with an astrophysicist to find out is there, y'know, anyone out there? And the conversation has never really ended.

After touring and updating the show after each new related scientific endeavour or discovery, 600 People continues to ask the fundamental questions about evolution and intelligence, belief and invention, communication and space travel.

On the 50th anniversary, Third Angel will be performing at Latitude Festival on the very day that the NASA Apollo 11 crew successfully completed the national goal set by President John F Kennedy: to perform a crewed lunar landing and return to Earth.

It is also part of the A Future Fantastic festival at Theatre Deli in Sheffield this Friday and Saturday.
