Meet the makers is a Dukes initiative which aims to give the audience a chance to peek behind the curtain and be part of the creative process. You’ll get to spend an hour in the rehearsal room with the makers of the show seeing where they’re up to in the process and offering your thoughts on anything they have to show! This is your opportunity to ask questions about how a show is made!

Home Grown Theatre in The Round

By Sarah McDonald Hughes | Directed by Alex Summers

10.45pm, Saturday 5th December 2015 – the lights go out across Lancaster, Morecambe and Carnforth, plunging 100,000 people into darkness.

The total power cut leaves communities without communication, transport or information, cut off from the modern world in a blackout of unprecedented proportions.

A girl wanders through the dark city, trying to find her way home…and the flood waters are still rising.

Blackout is an original play inspired by testimony from residents, community organisations, emergency responders, sociologists and journalists, telling the stories of ordinary lives in extraordinary times during the Storm Desmond power cut.

A thrilling account of the chaos, bewilderment and camaraderie of those who weathered the storm together.

Created with and performed by local people.

This event is free but ticketed
