Congratulations to Lemn Sissay who has just won the PEN Pinter prize.

This is a rare chance to see a dramatic reading of the acclaimed one-man play by the celebrated performance poet.  It’s the first time this show has been performed in Nottingham.

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.

“This is a must see event. I was riveted from start to finish. And the following Q & A session was extraordinary. I wholeheartedly recommend this show.” Paul Miller, Artistic Director, Orange Tree Theatre

“It would be impossible to come away from this show unmoved and uninspired” – Metro London
