Going Dark

A subtle and moving show from immersive theatre gurus Sound&Fury that arrives back in London - at the Science Museum - after opening at the Young Vic.  'Going Dark' is a haunting chamber piece which takes place in total darkness and faint pools of light. But while the audio and visual trickery is first rate, the play's soul lies in Hattie Naylor's beautifully understated text - the story of Max, a single dad attempting to come to terms with a rapid degeneration in his eyesight. There are weighty themes here, but 'Going Dark' has a lightness of touch that prevents it becoming overwrought.
