Lemn Sissay returns to the Chester Literature Festival, this time performing a dramatic full stage reading of his award winning one-man play, Something Dark.

Originally directed by John McGrath (National Theatre of Wales), the play has been performed throughout the world and poetically tells the story of Lemn’s upbringing and his search for his family and true identity.

Includes interval.
The play will be followed by a Q and A, a chance to hear Lemn at his charismatic best.

Originally commissioned by Apples and Snakes, Contact and Battersea Arts Centre
