Dark Lucy, a thriller centred on the mystery of a young girl’s disappearance, will be performed by Portishead Players from Thursday 12th to Saturday 14th October at the Somerset Hall. Evening shows commence 7.30pm, with a Saturday matinee starting at 2.00pm.
Written by Philip King and Parnell Bradbury, theatregoers can expect suspense, crime, and secrets. The gripping play, which will keep audiences on the edge of their seats, takes place around an eerie cottage inhabited by a mysterious village recluse. What could she be hiding?
Portishead Players will be showcasing strength in set design, with Director Dave Richardson having worked as Technical Director for many years. Dave explains, “Players has taken on new challenges staging shows in recent years - this season is no different. The set for Dark Lucy is demanding and will be one of the surprises for those watching! I do not wish to say too much about the story as I want the audience to embark upon the same journey I did when I first read it! The set, costume and props teams are adding their professional skills to ensure our high standards are maintained and my experienced cast will expertly bring the characters to life.”
Dark Lucy kicks off an exciting new season with Beauty and the Beast to be staged 7th to 9th December, The Jungle Book - a Portishead Young Players Production - showing 1st to 3rd March and concluding with The Shell Seekers 26th to 28th April.
