After Dark by Mike Kenny

returns by popular demand in October 2015

‘Each night Maman leaves the children tucked up in bed and goes to work in a café across the street. By moonlight the children listen to the sounds from the fairground. What if they went to explore? What if they solved the mystery behind the Ghost Train? What if they found out more than they bargained for . . . ?

After Dark  is a charming look at how a familiar setting can appear entirely different when the lights are out. It speaks of the delicious fear of frightening yourself with stories: stories told by parents, stories invented by children and stories children would like to believe.

The play is by Mike Kenny, Olivier nominee for The Railway Children, and well known in Ireland for many productions of his works.

School Performances can take place in the Graffiti Theatre, in Blackpool (which will have the use of full lighting effects)  or in your school hall.

After Dark is the centre of an educational theatre programme suitable for children in first and second class. It is designed to complement the SPHE, English, Drama and Art programmes.

After Dark is available to schools in October 2015.

Family Performances (Suitable for children aged 5 – 8 and their families) will also be available on Saturdays during October.
