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.
Blackout plays 13 October – 3 November. Alex Summers directs.
