In a lonely motel room.
Somewhere in central Australia.
Six lost souls collide.
Isolated in dark and dangerous territory.
Haunted by the same tragic crime.
The Dark Room (Best New Australian Play, Sydney Theatre Awards) exposes the startling mis-treatment of the most vulnerable in our society, at the hands of those who are meant to protect them. The intricately layered, psychological thriller reminds us that no matter how far apart we are in distance and time, we are all responsible for each other's lives.

Hardened from a life filled with bullies, her mum's dead-beat boyfriends and no sense of hope, Chloe uses her sexuality as her armour and her weapon. Chris’s sexuality is utterly under-used. Always on the wrong side of cool, he’s living a very different version of hell. But when ‘Odd Boy’ Chris meets ‘Chloe from the Underworld’, an intense connection is formed. Suddenly, a different life seems possible.
