“Rising stars” Spun Glass Theatre (Brighton  Source) present You Left Me in the Dark; a devised piece of new writing inspired by Chekhov’s The Seagull and the music of Florence + the Machine. The audience encounters Masha and Nina, in the depths of The Old Police Cells, using a new, vibrant vocabulary to protest against their personal pain.

“Spun Glass achieves a sensitive portrayal of runaway emotion which, in different hands,

might descend into giddy stereotype; it doesn’t here…

Lexx’s gutsy rendition of ‘Cosmic Love’ is a credit to Florence and the Machine.”

Catherine Meek

 

Spun Glass Theatre is a Brighton-based theatre company founded in 2010. They run the highly successful Scratch Session monthly at The Old Market, Hove. Their debut production Laura (2010) was a distillation of Tennessee Williams’ classic The Glass Menagerie.Ink (2011) written and directed by Laura Lexx, was an examination of the personal implications of media scrutiny.

 

Spun Glass Theatre is devoted to personal protest through words and worlds.
