Time Out Says

Alistair McDowall follows up ‘Pomona’ and ‘X’ with drama about a mysterious young Victorian woman with astonishing powers

Alistair McDowall hit upon a rich, dark seam of magical realism (or surrealism) with his last two plays, the audacious, Lovecraftian ‘Pomona’ and the brain-melting sci-fi ‘X’. The follow-up to ‘The Glow’ – which sees him reunite with ‘X’ director Vicky Featherstone – sounds like it will continue down that path: that is to say, it’ll be completely unpredictable. ‘The Glow’ is set in 1863, and follows a young woman with no memory who is plucked from an asylum to serve as the assistant to a spiritualist medium, a course of action which unlocks both her past and new powers. Fisayo Akinade, Rakie Ayola, Tadhg Murphy and Ria Zmitrowicz star.
