A space drama set on Pluto is among the new plays in the Royal Court's 60th anniversary season in 2016.
Alistair McDowall's play, X, tells the story of the crew of a lone research base on the dwarf planet who have lost contact with Earth.
The London venue's artistic director Vicky Featherstone, who will direct the play, admitted that science fiction was "notoriously difficult" to stage.
"It plays with the ideas of all those space station films," she said.
"It's about what it's like if we were trapped in space with nothing out there and how would we communicate."
She promised there would be "no bungee ropes" that would simulate zero gravity when the play begins its run at the Royal Court's Jerwood Theatre in March.
