Fading into Nothingness at the Merlin Theatre

Fading into Nothingness at the Merlin Theatre

The Merlin Theatre operates as a social enterprise for SEN students of Freeman College and Brantwood Specialist School (of Ruskin Mill Trust) providing opportunities for work experience and personal development within a working theatre, while mentoring students with bespoke creative ambitions. The Merlin is proud to present the opening of ‘Fading into Nothingness ‘ on January 17th, 18th and 19th written by Theo Griffiths, a former student of Freeman College. Theo has since graduated and moved to Mind the Gap Theatre Company for further training in the entertainment industry and is continuing their vision to raise awareness of autism and mental health through their play.

Fading into Nothingness sees a Sheffield family torn apart by grief, how they cope with their teenage son, Zack (played by Theo) who is autistic and already struggling in mainstream school.

Fading into Nothingness is a short play and its success will determine whether the production can continue to raise awareness by going on tour. All actors are professional and local; this is a profit share project

When I moved to Sheffield nearly five years ago it was my "go to" organisation. I expect it to stay that way. All the staff and volunteers seem to pull out little gems of effort that disabled people like me couldn't do without. Professionally and personally - I love em :)

A fantastic presentation thought provoking and good questions from the floor around promoting this film/message to the general public not just professionals.

Disability Sheffield is a forward-thinking, energetic organisation doing a lot of positive work in Sheffield. I have no doubt they will continue to do so for a long time to come.
