ABOUT THE DARK

Night is not the only darkness.

A night in November 1978; young Nick and his mother flee their home of Kampala and travel by matatu. Buying safe passage and silence with all they have, the conductor asks no questions.
Their companions are the missing, lost and displaced. Those who have suffered eight years under the violent rule of Idi Amin.We share in their stories of allegiance and conflict, echoing out through the darkness.

The Dark is directed by JMK award-winning director Roy Alexander Weise (Mountain Top, Young Vic and Nine Night, National Theatre. Co-commissioned by Ovalhouse and Fuel, supported by Arts Council England and Coombe Farm Studios. Development supported by PULSE Festival and as part of Ovalhouse’s FiRST BiTES series.
