Light Years to the Delling Shore

Institute History

  • 2011 Theatre Lab at the Banff Centre


At an upscale country house in the secluded woods Thomas, a very successful novelist, and his old grad school chum Frank, a struggling writer, have decided to spend a night catching up and have brought along their college-age daughters. The men's fraught history and competitiveness collides with their daughters’ desire to establish themselves, and avoid replicating their fathers’ damaged relationship. But soon the young women enter the fray as the bad behavior spins out of control over wine, cheese, and literary games.

As you use our Online Archives, please understand that the information presented from Festivals, Labs, and other activities is taken directly from official publications from each year. While this information is limited and doesn't necessarily represent the full list of participants (e.g. actors and crew), it is the list given to us by the main film/play/project contact at the time, based on the space restrictions of our publications. Each entry in the Online Archives is meant as a historical record of a particular film, play, or project at the time of its involvement with Sundance Institute. For this reason, we can only amend an entry if a name is misspelled, or if the entry does not correctly reflect the original publication.
