'I am driven by a mission from God.' George W Bush, New York Times, August 2003. Darkness explores the inherent dangers of religious fundamentalism and its devastating impact on one family. The intimate relations between the members of a rural community, act as a damming metaphor for how powerful authority figures claim a divine right to act with impunity, often with devastating consequences. Darkness is a brand new play written by Fringe First award winning playwright Jonathan Lichtenstein. Directed by Gari Jones. 'A harrowing heartbreaking play…' (Guardian on The Pull of Negative Gravity, Jonathan’s previous work.)
