UK Premiere of Angela Betzien's award winning


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 (Best New Australian Play, Sydney Theatre Awards) exposes the startling mistreatment of the most vulnerable in our society, at the hands of those who are meant to protect them. 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.

Award winning Paperbark Theatre produce the best in new Australian writing to international audiences. Following the success of their debut production of This is Where We Live, (Excellence Award for Best Overall Play, New York Fringe & Critics’ Pick Time Out New York). Paperbark join forces with new company, Thinking Aloud, to bring you The Dark Room.
