Star Trek: The Next Generation‘s Marina Sirtis will make her West End debut in Michael Dennis‘ Dark Sublime where she will take on the lead role of Marianne.
Dark Sublime “follows an unlikely new friendship as an old one fractures. Oli arrives at the door of a now-forgotten sci-fi icon – impatient to make friends, and to make something of his life. 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. Yet as they start to explore each other’s worlds, they begin to discover what every good relationship needs: time and space.”
“A tribute to the community of fandom, Dark Sublime examines the feeling of belonging that comes with finding your place among the outcasts. Exploring the complexities of relationships especially in the LGBTQ community, and the contrast in lived experiences across generations, Dark Sublime is about joy and heartbreak as much as it is about quarries and transmat beams.”
Dark Sublime will play at Trafalgar Studios from June 25 to August 3 2019.
