Don't miss this thrilling eye-opener from Australian playwright Angela Betzien
Deep in the night
In a lonely motel room
Somewhere in Central Australia
Six lost souls collide
Isolated in dark and dangerous territory
Haunted by the same tragic crime.
The Dark Room exposes the abuse, neglect and limited social care in remote communities in Australia’s Northern Territory. Winner of Best New Australian Work at the Sydney Theatre Awards, this intricately layered psychological thriller reminds us that no matter how far apart we are in distance and time, we are all responsible for each other’s lives.
