Deep in the night, six lost souls play out a small, distant tragedy of lovesickness and social breakdown – only it's not the same night.
The Dark Room is a beautifully formed thriller about the startling idea that, no matter how far apart we are in distance and time, we are all responsible for each other.
Winner: Best New Australian Play (Sydney Theatre Awards 2011)
"... disturbing yet compelling and worthwhile play that examines our failure to protect those most in need" - Everything Theatre, London
"It’s a powerful and often disturbing work... cleverly written and extremely well-constructed as the play ingeniously weaves a desperate and chilling tale." Stage Whispers
"Theatre innocents should probably be prepared to be shocked while being thoroughly engrossed." Glam Adelaide
