The Dark Room takes a sober look at one of the devastating issues of contemporary Australian discourse - the abuse of defenceless children. The show serves as a timely reminder that no matter how far apart we are in distance and time, we are all responsible for each other's lives.

Deep into the night, in a run-down motel somewhere in central Australia, six lost souls collide in a distant tragedy of lovesickness and social breakdown - only it's not the same night. A teenage boy from a nearby country town longs for a stranger. Pregnant Emma longs for her husband, a country cop, drunk after his best friend's wedding. Anni, a government youth worker accompanied by a withdrawn and violent fourteen-year-old girl, longs for the dawn. As the night draws on, each of them become trapped in a dark and dangerous territory, all searching for a way out.

Tickets are priced £15 (£12 concessions), previews are £10, and Saturday matinees are Pay What You Can. Available from Theatre503 Box Office and theatre503.com, 020 7978 7040.
