Theatre: It's Dark Outside

Perth Theatre Company
Created and Performed by Tim Watts, Arielle Gray and Chris Isaacs
Set construction by Anthony Watts
Music by Rachael Dease
STC Studio

It's Dark Outside is back for a short season at the STC Studio from September 12 - 14. This review is from its original 2012 season.

As our lives extend, the manifestations of our long declines come from the shadows. Dementia, Alzheimer’s, memory loss, sundowning syndrome (the specific subject of this play) are a fearsome, insidious blight on so many lives.   
The team of Tim Watts, Arielle Gray and Chris Isaacs tackle these demons head on in It’s Dark Outside, and the result is a rare triumph of theatrical ingenuity and human compassion.
There’s a touch of genius about these young artists, and it’s on display in this, the highlight of the Perth stage so far this year.
