Auditions for our next production, Dark Sublime by Michael Dennis, will take place at 7.30pm on Tuesday 10th October and on Wednesday 18th October at St Mary Le Wigford Church, Lincoln LN5 7EQ.
When Oli arrives at now-forgotten sci-fi icon Marianne’s door, they are looking for an autograph – and maybe a friend. Marianne’s hoping for her phone to ring, for her best friend to see her differently, for her turn at something more substantial than a half-remembered role on a cult TV show.
As the actor and the fan start to explore each other’s worlds, they begin to discover what every good friendship needs: time and space.
Dark Sublime explores the complexities of relationships across the generations and is a love letter to British TV sci-fi (think Blake’s 7) with scenes from the real world intercut with scenes from a lost last episode that connect to what is happening in the real lives of the characters on stage.
Exploring the world of television and fandom, the lives of those who make it and adore it, the play is about joy and heartbreak and, most of all, friendship.
We will be performing Dark Sublime at the Broadbent Theatre in Wickenby on 11th, 12th and 13th April 2024.
