Those of you interested in the previously-mentioned performances of Robots of Death and Storm Mine at the Fab Cafe and Lass O’Gowrie in Manchester take heed: some dates have changed!

While Paul Darrow (Blake’s 7‘s Kerr Avon) will still be appearing on July 1st, the subsequent Darrow-less run of both shows has now been rescheduled as follows:

Robots of Death – July 22nd (2pm, 4:30pm, 8pm), 23rd (7:00pm), 24th (7:00pm) at the Fab Cafe.
Storm Mine – July 28th (2pm, 5pm), 29th (2pm, 5pm, 8pm), 30th (6:30pm, 8:30pm) at the Lass O’Gowrie.

As a result the adaptation of Nigel Kneale’s classic Year of the Sex Olympics is now July 13th (6:30pm, 9pm), 14th (2:00pm, 5:00pm),  15th (2pm, 4:30pm) + 31st July (6pm, 9pm) at the Lass O’Gowrie.

If you’ve stumbled here by chance and all of this is complete news to you, then in a nutshell a Doctor-less performance (using Darrow’s character from the Kaldor City audios) of Robots of Death is being produced – with Chris Boucher’s blessing – with Paul Darrow starring on the opening night and a new cast for the subsequent run later in July. The opening night will feature Robots of Death tethered to its Kaldor City sequel Storm Mine, with each show then given a separate run, as described above.
