Dr. Triona Fitton is working alone in mission control to help secure the last minute launch of a colony ship that will take humanity to the stars.
Light Delay tells the story both of humanity's last chance to spread into the universe and the consequences it has for those left on Earth. From the personal conflicts of the former lovers to environmental disaster, the play examines the choices of two people and the decisions they make.
