Dark Sublime description

Dark Sublime – A love letter to British science fiction TV

Michael Dennis is one of our best-respected Stage Managers. He loves science fiction almost as much as he loves top class theatre, and this new show offers plenty of both. Dark Sublime is a love letter to British sci-fi telly and the people who make it, and it's as quirky as you'd expect from such wonderfully eccentric subject matter.

The story? Marianne is a long-forgotten sci-fi TV icon. When Oli turns up on her doorstep wanting her autograph, keen to make friends, Marianne, isn't interested... or is she? When the pair begin to discuss their different worlds, they soon discover that every good relationship needs both time and space to develop.

The play cleverly explores the complexities of human relations, focusing particularly on the LGBTQ community, and delves deep into the very different life experiences of different generations. The story speaks about heartbreak and happiness just as eloquently as it does about tractor beams and spaceships. Dark Sublime also explores the world of fans and the powerful feeling of belonging we get from finding a place among our fellow outcasts.

The brilliant 'Star Trek: The Next Generation' star Marina Sirtis aces the lead role as Marianne in the world premiere of the play. It's directed by the talented Andrew Keates, who also directed As Is and Dessa Rose at the Trafalgar Studios, and the rest of the cast is to be confirmed.

Andrew Keates is by all accounts thrilled to return to Trafalgar Studios again after such happy times working on Dessa Rose and As Is. And Michael Dennis is justifiably proud of this fabulous piece of work, which he calls, “a big story full of laughter, tears, and silver lame spacesuits”. No wonder he's looking forward to seeing audiences engage with the birth of the universe he has created, supported by awesome radiophonic sound effects.

The Producers are Jamie Chapman Dixon and Piers Cottee-Jones, for Rigmarole Productions, and the play is made in association with Arion Productions. If you like your theatre unusual, quirky and compelling, walk this way.
