The Elysium, After Dark

So, as we mentioned recently, and as you may have read elsewhere (elsewhere? ELSEWHERE?!) a new Doctor Who stage production The Crash of the Elysium is due to start next month.

Written by Doctor Who scribe Tom MacRae and based upon an idea by the man himself, Steven Moffat, the show is quite unique as it gets the children who attend it involved in the action!

The plot details are scarce but audiences will find themselves exploring the wreck of the steamship and hopefully having a lot of fun and scares as they go along.

However, what has recently been announced is that there will be a show that takes place after The Crash of the Elysium, which has the inconspicuous title of After Dark. Running from July 5th until July 17th, the additional performance will show between 8pm and 9pm.

Quite what this extra piece will entail can be left up to your imaginations for now. Maybe it will be a Torchwood style spin off where characters from the main production find themselves in some sticky situations!

The Crash of the Elysium will be making its debut at the Manchester International Festival. Information on ticket prices, dates and times and even a few video recommendations from a lucky few who have already got to see it is available at the MIF website.


What happens when an eight year old kid watches the 1993 repeat run of Planet of the Daleks? He pretty much ends up here writing about the show that grabbed hold of him and never let go!
