A rare chance to see a dramatic reading of the acclaimed one-man play by celebrated performance poet, Lemn Sissay.

Something Dark tells the story of Lemn Sissay’s upbringing in children’s homes and foster care, and the search for his family and true identity. Originally directed by John McGrath (National Theatre of Wales), Something Dark has been performed throughout the world to great critical acclaim. It was adapted for BBC Radio 3 in 2005, and the following Q&A sessions have become legendary.

To celebrate the publication of Something Dark by Oberon Books and its inclusion on ‘Contemporary Black British Literature: A Reading Guide’, produced to accompany Edexcel’s A level English Literature and English Language and Literature; we are delighted to share this with you.

We're also running a special pre-show Insight event to coincide with this show.
