‘What if I look down at my baby and I don’t know who they are? Just some… entity. Alien to me. Staring back. A nothing. Or worse, look down and all I see is Ed Sheeran.’

Two couples each invite a stranger into their homes in the hope of sparking new life. Instead, they find themselves threatened by invasion, alienation and abduction…

Louis Emmitt-Stern’s uncanny and razor-sharp sci-fi comedy-drama I Fucked You in My Spaceship received a sold-out premiere at VAULT Festival 2023, winning the Origins Award for Outstanding New Work. It subsequently transferred to Soho Theatre, London.

‘Louis Emmitt-Stern is a rising star playwright’
Time Out

‘Humour and heartbreak in a play about relationships that cleverly riffs on themes of invasion and abduction… commendably fresh and candid’
Lost in Theatreland

‘Wickedly funny… an initially far-fetched premise that becomes less ridiculous as it progresses… an absolute triumph’
All That Dazzles
