Darkness, Darkness

Resnick's Last Case on stage at Nottingham Playhouse

Embed

  1. In September New Perspectives teamed up with Nottingham Playhouse for our first ever co-production, John Harvey's Darkness, Darkness.
  2. John Harvey and Jack McNamara discuss Darkness, Darkness
  3. We were lucky to have John with us for the whole process, and he documented it throughout in his blog.
  4. The first day started at Nottingham Playhouse, with a tour of the venue and a welcome from Giles Croft.
  5. The cast and creatives set to work researching the worlds of both the Charlie Resnick books and the Miner's Strike. John took actor David Fleeshman on a tour of 'Resnick's Nottingham', visiting haunts such as The Peacock, and Music Inn.
  6. The full cast were treated to a discussion about Nottingham during the Miner's Strike by political expert Harry Paterson. It is a fascinating part of Nottingham history and what we learned was invaluable in giving the production authenticity.
  7. The wine bottle may explain this situation... Simone Saunders and Jonathan Woolf enjoy some dance practice! #DarknessDarkness
  8. For the show's trailer, we conceptualised a news feature, bringing Resnick's fictional world into our own Nottingham reality, setting up the time frames in which the play occurs - the present day and the 1980s.

  12. Just been past The Peacock on the way to #nottinghamplayhouse : if he wasn't appearing on stage tonight for the opening performance of #DarknessDarkness , we're pretty sure this is where you could find Resnick! We hope you can all join us for the first night this evening!
