The Mills Observatory will be converted into a dystopian future for a new piece of theatre created by Dundee youngsters.
The observatory, which opened in 1935, will be transported to 2046 during the newly devised play.
Audience members will follow the actors around the building as the futuristic story comes to life.
Experiment 01: Abandoned, a tale designed specifically for the observatory, was created by 25 young people who have been working on it since August.
They were joined by Glasgow-based composer Garry Cameron to create an original score to accompany the drama.
Lisa Williamson, who is co-directing the play, said: “This has been an incredibly exciting process for us and the young people. The opportunity to create a piece of theatre for a place like Mills Observatory has challenged and inspired us as a group.
“It has been clear from the start of the process how engaged the young people are with the world we live in today. Through debate, investigation and research the group have created a story that although set in the future feels very relevant today.
“Only 25 people can be in each audience, and they’re in very close proximity. It’s almost a one-on-one experience.
“We’ve had quite a few different visits to the observatory to get used to the space.
“It’s great at this point to think: ‘Remember eight months ago when all we had was the observatory?'”
The story is based in a world where the government experiments on citizens in the name of progress. All citizens must complete five social experiments throughout the course of their life, and the piece focuses on one group of young people who decide to take a stand against it.
The performance is also celebrating 80 years of stargazing at the observatory.
The story, script and songs have all been devised by the young cast, who will be providing their own live musical accompaniment during the performances.
Christine Miller, learning and engagement leader for Leisure and Culture Dundee, said: “We are hugely delighted to about the venue being used for the project. I think it is a really nice example of how cultural organisations can work together with young people to offer opportunities to engage them with art forms and science.”
Audience members will be required to move around the observatory, including outside, and seating will only be available in some scenes. Outdoor clothing and sturdy footwear are recommended.
Ticketholders will meet at Dundee Rep Theatre and will be taken to Mills Observatory by bus.
The show runs at various times from the 23-25 June.
