The Dark Room

This production focuses on gender based violence, and stands as warning to women to be aware of the signs of abuse.


Three women mistake the abuse they suffer at the hands of their partners for some kind of love language. By the time they realise they are victims of violence, it is too late and they tell their stories from the grave.
