About the Show/Event
Information for Heart of Darkness at New Wolsey Theatre, Ipswich (Play). Join Marlow on the deck of his steamboat, as he recounts the story of his traumatic journey down the Congo River deep into the dark, greedy heart of European colonialism. Stripped back to the essentials - one man, the objects around him and his story - this adaptation draws out the intensely personal narrative in Conrad's tale. A voyage through Marlow's fractured memories of his confrontation with the darkest truths of his society, a confrontation that led him to the very edge of his sanity.
