About the Show/Event
Information for You Stupid Darkness at Southwark Playhouse, Inner London (Play). Everything's been falling apart for a while now. In a cramped, crumbling office four volunteers spend a few hours every Tuesday night on the phone to strangers telling them everything is going to be ok. As the outside world disintegrates around them, Frances, Joey, Angie and Jon teeter on the edge of their own personal catastrophes. Their hopes and fears become entangled as they try, desperately, to connect with the callers and with each other. An urgent play from rising star Sam Steiner about the struggle for optimism and community amid the chaos of a collapsing world.
Approximate runtime 135minutes (including any interval).
Performers Andrew Finnigan (Joey), Jenni Maitland, Lydia Larson, Andy Rush.
