Staring Kirsty Eila Mcintyre and Dave Robb, the hour-long play will get three showings at the 35 seat venue at  St Margaret’s House on London Rd. It delves into the worlds of a boy and a girl, looking at their childhood friendship, separation and reunion – and a secret box that can only be opened on one very special occasion.

The script originated as a 20 minute short, Attraction, at one of Discover 21’s regular Collider events in October 2013. These bring writers, directors and performers together to create new works. Dave Robb, who plays the boy, was involved in the original staging, as was director, Adam Tomkins.

David McFarlane, who is producing the show for Black Dingo Productions and Discover 21, says that the main aim of the new production is to gauge audience response with the possibility of for further development of the script, as well as to expose the talents of new artists.

Speaking of the latest script, McFarlane added: “Something Resembling Love uses intelligent stylistic narrative and observational dualogues to weave together a magical story of friendship, separation and awakening.”
