Day Star theatre is bringing a new performance back to Audlem

The Last Run (2018) is the latest Day Star Theatre production.

DayStar theatre are based at the Bottom Lock in Audlem and have been performing "for a good number of years...."

The Last Run (2018)

A retired journalist enlists an ex colleague to help him track down an old narrow boat called The Himalaya.

His search begins at a disused and derelict wharf somewhere in the midlands at the heart of the English canal system. At one time the wharf and warehouse belonged to a busy specialist tea company who imported such teas as Darjeeling from the foothills of the Himalayas to the London Docks and then on by canal to the warehouse and wharf which in its present-day dilapidated state appears to be inhabited by an eccentric old lady.

The story flits from 2018 to various significant times in the past life of the narrowboat, The Himalaya, and its owner operators Albert and Annie.

Gradually we learn the significance of the narrow boat to the retired journalist and why the old lady either sets her imaginary dogs on visitors or makes them a cup of Darjeeling tea.
