There is a little wooden shack situated at the edge of a small town. It has had a somewhat chequered past, with ladies of questionable repute using it. However, the townspeople protested and it was sorted. It then moved on to become a meeting place for some people who were “different” in some way.

These characters have one thing in common: they want to get away from here, almost anywhere will do. The characters are aided to get away by the Gatekeeper to the Stars and helped by the towns leader.

The show takes the audience on a journey through the stars and the characters realise that, for some of them at least, they really miss home and want to get back. Do they succeed? Do they find happiness?
