Darkness Falls is a reimagining of John’s Gospel. Moving, funny, poetical and fantastical, the play mixes vivid storytelling with beautiful live music, to bring you a timeless story, as you’ve never seen it before.
Tried, convicted and sentenced to life imprisonment, John finds himself breaking rocks alongside killers and thieves. But John has a secret. John has a story, and it will change everything.
Written and produced by Saltmine Theatre Company, Darkness Falls was created as a partnership production with UCCF: The Christian Unions. UCCF have produced a seeker Bible study and gospel of John, ideal to give away at the end of the performance. For more info on the resources available from UCCF go to IVP Books
This show is written for university mission and contains aggressive behaviour and mild bad language. It is suitable for an audience of age 12 +
“We found the production amazing…the script was so uplifting and varied – entertaining, challenging, moving – and it was great to sense the full reality of John’s gospel through it.”
– Vicar, All Saints Church Madeley.

Consumed with guilt, wrestling with the darkness, Martin Luther carries his faith with painful fascination. Through intense study of the bible and prayer Martin becomes convinced that salvation comes through faith alone and can never be bought.
Who was Martin Luther? What is the significance of his life?
A group of students gather in their lecture hall to discuss these questions. They become engaged with Luther’s life story and discover a man compelled by his conscience, devout faith and intense study of Scripture to challenge accepted practices and beliefs. A man who had the courage of his convictions at great personal cost and whose unprecedented work to translate the Bible into his ‘mother tongue’ reveals a heart’s desire to reach out to all people.
500 years after the Reformation, join Saltmine Theatre Company to uncover the life of a true pioneer and appreciate his legacy today.

Commissioned by YMCA, created by Saltmine Theatre Company, The Soul In The Machine takes audiences back to 1844.
“We are more than bodies to be fed to a machine. We are made for more than work. We have souls, we have spirits and somewhere in this dead city there must be a place for those things.”
George Williams, founder of the YMCA.
Georgian London is the centre of empire, the crucible of the New Jerusalem. Her gutters run with effluent and blood and her skies are choked with the smoke of a hundred factories and foundries, but above the smoke, the stars will shine. George Williams is a country boy who comes to the city to find his place in the world, and to make his mark. Appalled by the spirit-crushing rhythms of worker’s life, he fights to spread the light of God, and create a place where the soul can be nurtured.
