It’s Dark Outside (Perth Theatre Company)

By | Published on Friday 30 August 2013

It’s Dark Outside tells the heartfelt tale of an elderly man escaping into the wilderness, where he attempts to run away from his reality and the misfortunes of old age. Through the unique use of animation, puppetry, dance and live acting, Perth Theatre Company bring his journey to life on stage, alongside a charming backing track of emotionally charged music composed by Rachel Dease. Touching on the universal themes of death, redemption and the inevitability of ageing, Tim Watts, Arielle Gray and Chris Isaacs are the tellers of a poignant and tender story that will stay with you far beyond the Fringe.

Underbelly Bristo Square, until 26 Aug (not 13) 5.30pm.
