Alone on the night shift, two female data analysts monitor radio waves for signs of alien contact. Every shift is the same. But tonight is different. Tonight is the night they’ve been waiting for.


The award-winning Footprint Theatre return to the Edinburgh Fringe with brand new show, Signals, a show about human connection, space exploration and Jaffa Cakes. A new dark comedy that asks how it feels to be lost in the cosmos with only each other for company.

Signals was first performed as a scratch as part of Sheffield Theatres' Making Room Studio Takeover 2018. 

Shortlisted for the Underbelly and New Diorama Untapped Award 2018.

Subsequently it has been performed at HOME and New Diorama as part of Incoming Festival and at The Pleasance Courtyard as part of their Edinburgh Fringe Festival programme 2018.

“Gently radical… it has this slow, winding power….the chemistry between Eve Cowley and Immie Davies is so easy and established and charming” - Exeunt


“Footprint Theatre earned plaudits at NSDF 2016 with Daniel , and it is building on that success with Signals, an off-kilter comedy about the search for extra-terrestrial life...with just a hint of magic” - The Stage

“A pleasingly gentle rumination on hope, devotion, perseverance and being human.” - Edinburgh Guide

“Eve Cowley and Immie Davies give crisp, witty performances” - Three Weeks

“Fabulously crafted, and genuinely thrilling”  - Edinburgh49+3
