Sublime at Tristan Bates Theatre

The heistess is back in town. In one week she has three jobs on her schedule. She's good, but is she that good? We will find out in Sublime, a provocative new play by Sarah Thomas, directed by Ben SantaMaria.

After a two-year estrangement, Sophie bursts back into her brother’s life, claiming to need his help in a series of thefts to cover a debt she owes in her new home in Corsica. Upset at her absence and seeming to have settled down with his girlfriend Clara, Sam is unable to say no to a last bash at an old, exciting life. As they don their costumes and practice their old grifting routines, old emotions quickly resurface and collide, forcing them to question the new lives they have built for each other. Can Sophie lure Sam away from domestic coupledom to rekindle their old crime partnership and save her skin? Balaclavas, wigs, jewels and forbidden passions collide in this tough-talking, fast-swindling dark comedy thriller.

Sarah Thomas is an emerging writer who has written three full-length stage plays all in different stages of development. She has had a short play produced at Theatre 503 (Gloves) off and has also held rehearsed readings of her other pieces. She is developing a play about female resistance heroes (High Seas) which she is hoping to bring to a London stage later this year.

Ben SantaMaria is a London-based writer/director. He recently co-directed After Orlando for Chaskis Theatre at The Vaults, London Waterloo and Gerry's, Theatre Royal Stratford East. He also co-directed, devised and wrote Jarman Garden, a full-length multimedia performance about the life, work and Dungeness garden of Derek Jarman (Riverside Studios, 2004). It was a finalist for the 2003 Oxford Samuel Beckett Theatre Trust Award.He has directed and assisted at various other London venues including Shakespeare's Globe and the Finborough. His writing has been staged at venues such as Theatre 503, Theatre N16, ARC Stockton and LOST Theatre and he's currently developing two full-length plays, Hunters and lulla.

Sublime will be presented at the Tristan Bates Theatre from 4 - 8 April 2017.
