Audience Feedback

'Deliciously dark and brooding on a starkly sublime set'

'This was one of the best plays I've ever seen. Amazing, atmospheric staging, fabulous'

'The design, out of black... with all the cuts, reveals and grainy projections really kept the action episodic - but moving and the bright room sections were a brilliant device - both relief for the eye as well as shifting the dynamic. We had local (Nottingham Trent University) students here as well, for whom the plot connected with family histories and made them feel very involved'

'Darkness, Darkness at the Nottingham Playhouse was brilliant tonight. Bleak, brutal, barren Nottingham noir. Resnick a bedraggled East Midlands Morse'

'Extremely powerful and moving'
