1538. Ipswich is a dangerous place of dark secrets and new whisperings. A preacher is dragged from his pulpit, arrested for protestant heresy, while Cromwell sends agents to dismantle the Town’s beloved Catholic Shrine and burn the statue of Our Lady. Trying to make sense of it all are Alice Driver, an ordinary Suffolk woman with an unshakable belief and her two best friends – the well-meaning Edward and loose cannon Alexander. A tragic love story, where beliefs, convictions and divided loyalties threaten to tear their world apart.
Following on from the huge success of Fallen In Love at The Tower of London which was hailed as “A real coup” by The Telegraph; and Progress which Libby Purves remarked made “Hairs stand up on your neck…An intimate, layered History-play” – Joanna Carrick’s exciting new History play Put Out The Lights is must-see drama for fans of Wolf Hall.
