"These are the stories. These are ours.
This is the dark side of the stone where the creatures creep."
Canaan and his son have come a long way to escape the horrors of Zimbabwe under Mugabe. But when Martha asks him to revisit his darkest memories, he’s forced to fight for their lives a second time.
Martha needs only an honest tale, but is either of them who they seem, and is the truth ever a simple story?
Performed in the intimacy of the re-opened Playhouse Studio, this world première of Lizzie Nunnery’s The Swallowing Dark is a psychological thriller that combines devastating power with the telling of a good story.
