There’s something in the air.  The Dark Sky animal rights group are planning an audacious strike against the Sutton Life Sciences laboratory. How will they get new recruits? Do they have to get new members on board or allow themselves to grow organically? Is everyone really who they appear to be?

Emma is having a relationship with Paul but John seems to be involved with her too, or was, somewhere down the line. Who knows who? Who can you trust? Where does Luke Chadwick fit in and can Laboratory boss Matthew Hetherington  get on with his life without a risk of people squirting perfume in his eyes to get even? Will animals or people get hurt in the process? Are these people dangerous or just a hapless group of amateurs?  Questions, questions all to be answered.  Inspired by a real life story, Alan Stockdill’s Dark Sky is a black comedy with more than a twist or two and certainly a shout or three.

The play covers a number of themes:  love, relationships, deception, passionate causes, animal rights, fidelity, duplicity, double lives. Are people really who they seem to be on the surface or do they put out an image opposite to who they really are.

The script flies off the page with energy, comedy, twists, turns and surprises.  One minute the audience will be speculating, the next they’ll be shocked.  Laughing, then considering. It’s not all black and white, there are several shades of grey.

When the Sky gets Dark will we see the Light?
