The Dark Room

The Dark Room

World Premiere

In this chilling new psychological thriller, six unlikely characters converge at a run-down motel on the edge of a military town. A boy waits for a stranger. Pregnant Emma waits for her husband, the country cop wasted after his best friend’s wedding. Anni the government youth worker accompanied by a withdrawn seventeen year-old girl, waits for the dawn. As the night wears on each of them find themselves trapped in dark and dangerous territory, searching for a way out.

The Dark Room is a gripping new work from the writer of the award-winning play Hoods, full of haunting memories and emotional suspense.
