About Where No Man Has Gone Before

Where No Man Has Gone Before, Seattle Experimental Theater’s hit improvised parody of the original Star Trek TV series, is returning to Theatre Off Jackson in July for a two week run. Join the crew of the Enterprise as they encounter a mysterious ship in space and beam aboard its crew (defined by audience suggestions). But are the alien visitors friend or foe? Tensions rise on the Enterprise as the crew and ship are put in unforeseen danger.
At every performance, the cast will use suggestions from the audience to create a brand new episode. Each performance is a completely original adventure.

Where No Man Has Gone Before premiered in 2011 and has since appeared before packed houses in a wide variety of Seattle venues, receiving popular and critical acclaim. The production has been featured in the Hawaii Improvaganza Festival (2012), Seattle Festival of Improv Theater, Geek Girl Con, and at Emerald City Comicon (2013, 2014, 2015 and 2017).

ABOUT THE SHOW

The old jail that might be haunted. The house that has housed three generations of a family. The local restaurant that was the site of a bank robbery in the 1940s. What ghosts are you walking through? The spaces around us are rich with history defined by wonderful, terrible, forgettable, sublime individual and collective experiences, yet we exist in them for only one moment at a time.

“Time’s Arrow” invites you to take a walk through the spaces of the past. Every performance, Time’s Arrow uses stories from the audience to explore the layers of life piled in a single location.
