A rare chance to see a dramatic reading of the acclaimed play by celebrated performance poet, Lemn Sissay MBE.
 
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/MIF/Contact), it has been performed throughout the world to critical acclaim. It was adapted for BBC Radio 3 in 2005, and the following Q&A sessions have become legendary. 
 
An extraordinary true story, told by a masterful performer.
