A new drama, developed in association with ARC Stockton, Cultural Shift and Little Cog, is coming to Bishop Auckland Town Hall on Monday 23rd May starting at 7.30pm.
The Dust of The Street’s Shining is written by Bishop Auckland playwright Alison Carr and focuses on Una, a woman who finds herself stranded in an unfamiliar street having had a panic attack on a bus.
She is a castaway in an urban limbo-land, where her memories and imaginings rear up like ghostly reflections of the rain washed street, gradually revealing the currents of desire, longing, guilt, fear, regret and hope she usually manages to keep locked up inside her.
Dust of The Street’s Shining is Alison’s fourth play produced by Little Cog, an arts organisation specialising in the production of professional Disability Art.
Told in a wild and wide ranging monologue, contrasting poetic lyricism with hard gritty realist script, The Dust of The Street’s Shining peels back the layers of Una’s personality and her sense of identity. Will she find her way back through the cracks in the pavement?
The play stars actress Jacqueline Phillips, seen recently in the critically-acclaimed one woman drama, Butterfly, by Vici Wreford-Sinnott at Stockton ARC and who has appeared in Emmerdale and TV crime dramas George Gently and Vera.
Tickets for The Dust of The Street’s Shining are priced £8 (£6 concession) and can be booked by contacting the Bishop Auckland Town Hall Box Office on 03000 269 524 or in person at the venue.
