  • Best New Australian Work, Sydney Theatre Awards - 2011
Deep in the night, in a lonely motel room somewhere in central Australia, six lost souls collide – haunted by the same tragic crime. 
 
Angela Betzien's The Dark Room is an intricately layered psychological thriller, exposing the startling mistreatment of those most vulnerable in our society, at the hands of those who are meant to protect them. 
 
The play was first staged by Black Swan State Theatre Company at the Perth Institute of Contemporary Arts in May 2009. It won the award for Best New Australian Work at the Sydney Theatre Awards in 2011, and had its UK premiere at Theatre503, London, in November 2017.

‘Last night I cut this.
It’s a heart.
It’s forever.
It’s for you.’
