Dark Sublime, Trafalgar Studios

Dark Sublime

Trafalgar Studio Two, London

Sorry, this show is not currently booking.

Dark Sublime is a love-letter to British sci-fi television – those that make it and those that adore it.

Exploring the complexities of relationships, especially in the LGBTQ community, and the contrast in lived experiences across generations, Michael Dennis has crafted a story that is as much about joy and heartbreak as it is about quarries and transmat beams.

Making her West End debut, Star Trek: The Next Generation star Marina Sirtis will take the lead as Marianne in the world premiere of Dark Sublime, directed by Andrew Keates (As Is and Dessa Rose – Trafalgar Studios).

Dark Sublime is booking from 25 June 2019 until 3 August 2019 at Trafalgar Studio 2, London.

WHAT’S THE STORY?

Oli arrives at the door of Marianne, a now-forgotten sci-fi TV icon, impatient to make an impression, to make a friend. Marianne, a jobbing actress, knows about waiting – for the 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. He wants an autograph; she doesn’t want anything from him – or so she thinks. Yet as they start to explore each other’s worlds, they begin to discover what every good relationship needs: time and space.
