42 is a comical and cosmical play based on the stories of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. It is a warm-hearted, fast-paced, and mostly silly take on the well-known tale of Arthur, the only Earthling left in the whole Galaxy. Simultaneously, it might answer one of the most asked question: ‘What is the meaning of life?’

  • 42 made use of a projector in the back of the theater, displaying animations, images or videos made by the crew.
  • Multiple posters were made for 42, all of them including the logo and another iconic concept: One with the whale and the bowl of petunias, one with Magrathea and one with the words "Don't Panic". The whale was mostly used in terms of promotion, and appeared on the cover of the program booklet.
