What is Michael Dennis' Dark Sublime play about?
Oli is a die-hard fan of a sci-fi show from yesteryear. When he shows up at the front doorstep of the show's long-forgotten actress, Marianne, asking for an autograph, Marianne wishes nothing but the chance to be remembered for more than just her cult television role. As they explore each other's worlds, they find out that they're not exactly worlds apart after all.
