What Sharp has created is a grave, powerful and richly contemporary event...brave enough to bring these two mighty languages together. It should be seen across Scotland.”

    STELLAR QUINES THEATRE COMPANY AND REBECCA SHARP

    Join Stellar Quines Theatre Company and writer Rebecca Sharp for our 25th Rehearsal Room, a space where new scripts and new writers are presented to a live audience for the first time. Rebecca will be developing both The Dark Twin and her companion piece Little Forks during Rehearsal Room 25.

    Themes of Scottish history, archaeology, dreams and embeddedness link the two works.

    Little Forks is about a brother and sister revisiting a childhood holiday cottage in Tighnabruaich and unearthing a violent incident from their past.

    The Dark Twin will elaborate on the theme of duality developed in Little Forks. Sharp will create a contemporary, original single-performer narrative exploring themes of conflict; past and present; action and reaction; fate and intentionality; set around the inheritance of a friend’s house. Through this story, the play will also explore the life and work of Scottish writer and archaeologist Marion Campbell and her novel The Dark Twin.

    Key features of both works will be the intertwining of reality and fantasy and the exploration of layers - through the use of English and Gaelic, set design, lighting and visuals. Crucially, brand new musical scores will create unique ‘voices’ for the worlds of both plays – by Catriona McKay/Strange Rainbow.

    Rebecca and the creative team will be working on each piece during the day and opening the rehearsal room process up to audiences in the evening, where you will be invited to discuss your thoughts with the writer and director. Come and be part of the next instalment of the Rehearsal Room story.

    Schedule:
    The team will be working on Little Forks on Tuesday, 28 October, with a reading and feedback session in the evening, at 7.30pm, whilst on Wednesday, 29 October, they'll be working on The Dark Twin with a reading and feedback session that same evening at 7.30pm.
