Going Dark


Wednesday 8 - Saturday 11 February 2012 Download Calendar


Written by Hattie Naylor in collaboration with Sound&Fury

How far can you see? A mile? A hundred miles? Or to the furthest shores of the universe? It’s Max’s job to ask the cosmic questions. Passionate about astronomy, he works as the narrator at the city’s Planetarium where he challenges his audiences with the mysteries of stars and science.

When his own life takes an unexpected turn, Max discovers that understanding the universe requires a different kind of vision… Sound&Fury use their innovative theatre vocabulary of immersive surround sound design, total darkness and imaginative lighting in Going Dark to reawaken our wonder at the cosmos and reveal how one man’s vision becomes illuminated by darkness.

‘The most brilliantly immersive piece of theatre I’ve seen all year’ ***** *The Daily Telegraph *on Sound&Fury’s ‘Kursk’

Please note that there are moments of complete darkness in the piece and the show has very low level lighting all the way through
