In seeking his big break, an unlucky American actor is propelled by misfortune to a tiny island in the Pacific where he unearths the forgotten story of Australia's most popular black entertainer of the 19th century, Irving Sayles. “Dark Stars” weaves together the story of these two African-Americans living a hundred years apart, in an examination of racist humor, and the price paid for lusting after fame at the cost of one's dignity.

Playwright and Director: Arthur Meek. Set Design: Sally Tran. Lighting Design: Colin Beardon. Producer: Jonathan Council. Recommended for: all audiences.
