Dirty Protest

Lightspeed from Pembroke Dock

By Mark Williams

Dirty Protest in co-production with Chapter and Torch Theatre

1979. When Star Wars superfan Sam discovers that the Millennium Falcon is being built in his home town, his life is turned upside down. Determined to get inside the cockpit; his only obstacle is his stepdad Mike, guardian of the secret hangar where the legendary ship is being built in Pembroke Dock.

2014. Sam’s daughter Lizzie goes missing, forcing him into a desperate hunt to bring her back to safety before it’s too late.

Never mind saving the galaxy, sometimes you just have to save your own world. Lightspeed from Pembroke Dock explores what happens when Hollywood’s best-loved spaceship lands on your doorstep. This is a story of hope, courage, and how to be a family when it seems the universe is against you.

A new play from writer Mark Williams (Jason & the Argonauts) and critically acclaimed company, Dirty Protest (Sugar Baby/Parallel Lines). Supported by the Arts Council of Wales, Welsh Government and the National Lottery.

Running time: approx 90 mins
