THE Cosmic Shambles Network in association with Footprint Theatre are bringing their hit production of Signals to Waterside Arts Centre, Sale, on Saturday, October 12 at 8pm.

It was a hit at last year’s Edinburgh Fringe and the visit to Sale will be part of a debut UK tour.

Set in the control room of a remote radio telescope, Signals is a comedy that follows two radio astronomers and their search for alien life over a number of years. At its core, the play is about searching for meaning in a world we will never fully understand.

It explores human connection, isolation, loneliness and what it is like to spend a lifetime searching for the intangible There’s also some stuff about jaffa cakes!

Signals asks how it feels to be lost in the cosmos with only each other and a cup of lukewarm tea for company.Signals will be performed by Eve Cowley and Immie Davies. For tickets, telephone 0161 912 5616 or book online at
