Science Fiction Theatre & Greek Theatre Company


(Including plays of Modern & Contemporary Science Fiction, Science Theatre, Horror Theatre & related genres)

By Christos Callow Jr

The Internet Science Fiction Theatre Database (ISFTDB) of Cyborphic primarily consists of contemporary plays, i.e. published and/or produced in the 21st Century. Some key texts of sci-fi theatre from the 20th Century are included in a separate section. For a more complete list of 20th Century science fiction plays, see Ralph Willingham’s appendix in his 1993 book Science Fiction and the Theatre.

Our Database is primarily focused on science fiction theatre, yet also features related genres; in short, everything that falls under the umbrella terms Speculative Fiction and Fantastika (such as Horror, Contemporary Fantasy and the Weird) and works of Science Theatre as well are also of interest. Finally, a bibliography of related studies and articles is included in its own section. For the reader’s convenience these are mostly non-academic sources readily available online, but some academic studies are included as well.

Abbreviations: SF (Science Fiction), H (Horror), F (Fantasy), W (Weird. Works considered “Lovecraftian” will be in this category), AF (Afrofuturism) and ST (Science Theatre)

The Database will be soon updated to include more titles and information. It is currently focused on UK productions either by UK or international playwrights, but it will be updated to include more international work. The Database cannot include every single production but features work that is considered to be of artistic merit, originality and/or impact. Entries may be revised or removed at any time at the discretion of the author. The Database may not be replicated or modified without permission from the author. The first version of the SFTDB was originally published on on 15 June 2018 and included a list of 50* original 21st Century plays, alongside selected 20th Century plays, theatre festivals & secondary sources. (*Updated on 19 June 2018 to include a total of 80 original 21st Century plays and on 24 June 2018 to add an additional 20 - 100 in total. Has been updated frequently since. Last update 9 July 2019, adding an additional 17 plays, mostly of 2019.)

So, there you go. The ISFTDB!
