The Darkroom

Presented by HOTBED – Black Swan State Theatre Company

Written by Angela Betzien, Directed by Adam Mitchell



“Acting accolades go to Arielle Gray as the vacillating, defiant and confrontational 14-year-old Grace. Apparently the victim of domestic abuse/neglect, her story unfolds gradually. Gray combines beautifully her histrionic rage and heartbreaking vulnerability.” The West Australian, Ali Talbut

 Anni (Jacinta John) and Grace (Arielle Gray) have the most text and it is these characters the audience gets to know the best. Grace begins the show with a pillowcase (complete with eye holes, ears and a drawn on mouth) over her head, and it is this eerie image that remains with you even as her tortured, confused soul is revealed. Both John and Gray excel in these two heart wrenching roles.  – The Australian Stage, Anna LockeThe Australian Stage
