Description

Brown’s Mart is an iconic, much loved performance space that has been the centre of community arts development for over 40 years. It is the only venue in Darwin that supports a continuous program of new, local theatre in an intimate setting and welcoming atmosphere, entertaining audiences with stories that are engaging, culturally diverse and thought provoking. As one of Darwin’s oldest and most significant heritage buildings, located in the heart of Darwin City, it is a draw card to those visitors to the Territory looking to identify and experience local culture and history.

16 - 27 October 2018 SINGULARITY, a new play by Philip Tarl Denson, Directed by Tania Lieman. Presented by Brown’s Mart Productions. Set in the emptiness of deep space, the play follows Commander Alene Shaw who is shaken out of cryogenic sleep with no memory. Trapped in the damaged ship with only the eccentric Artificial Intelligence for assistance, she must use every ounce of her intellect to unravel clues about herself, her past, her mission, and her concept of reality... before she crashes into a black hole. As she slowly discovers the truth about her past, we share in her confusion and celebrate each discovery, until the emotionally powerful climax is reached, with a twist you won’t see coming! Warnings: Some graphic scenes, Special effects. Book online www.brownsmart.com.au.
