New England's only exclusively science fiction theater company premieres Solace, an original tale of heartache, humor and space travel. Life hasn't been the same for Julia, the brilliant engineer at the heart of Solace, since her husband Thomas was lost in space. Though the authorities have ended their search and her family has moved on, Julia still believes that Thomas can be found ... and she is the one to find him. Aided by a sass-talking GPS, Julia builds her own spaceship and heads out into the galaxy to find Thomas and discover the true lengths of her own devotion. The future is now at the Factory Theatre with the Science Fiction Theatre Company's world premiere of Solace. Learn More

I thought the play started out very well with an interesting take on the traditional story of Little Red Riding Hood that we all know. However, I felt the plot-line took a somewhat weird, unexpected turn, after which my interest faded. It wasn't necessary bad, but it just changed the dynamic of the story for me into a direction I just didn't feel meshed with the story all that well which led to disinterest and boredom.
It also didn't help that the theater was particularly warm and stuffy.

Quotes & Highlights
- Playwright Kevin Kordis recommends, “Find someone to watch the kids for the night and come experience a theatrical event that may alter your childhood memories forever."
Hailing from New Hampshire, New York and Rhode Island, Wax Wings Productions converged in Boston, MA. We were individually compelled by the thriving, innovative and exuberant theatre scene we found in a city as beloved for its sports as renowned for its history and academic institutions.
Working together as actors, we discovered a common penchant for stories about people who fall from a position of power, privilege or ignorance and must rely on their most primal instincts to survive.We agreed that some of the most interesting theatre emerges through daring choices made by actors, directors and designers alike.
Living in a world of rapid change and revolution, we strive to examine ourselves at this core level. What does it mean to be human? We will investigate what happens when we are stripped of everything but our mind, body and soul, what happens to the people around us, and how we all evolve. We dare to make bold choices, to challenge the norm and to truly explore our "Humanity."
We hope curious audiences come hungry and leave enriched, enlightened and inspired to explore themselves.
