What are you afraid of? The Dark is a supernatural romance set in the 1920s during the height of the Spiritualism craze. NZ sisters Mina and Hannah Fox are a sensation on the British and US séance circuit, until the editor of a psychic journal encourages them into a mid-Atlantic showdown with the most celebrated medium-buster of the age, ex-stage magician Harry Price. Tragedy ensues.
Their struggle to grasp happiness is blighted by the fate overhanging Hannah, and menaced by a hidden malevolent shadow.
Guilt must be exorcised, deceptions revealed, layers of truth peeled back, and a great sacrifice made before Mina and Harry can find their way into the light.
As part of the 2016 Circa Season we will be presenting a number of Play Readings throughout the year. In our 40th birthday year we are delighted to celebrate the 100+ New Zealand playwrights whose work has captivated our audiences over the years.
A Play Reading will include actors on stage reading the play in full, directed and rehearsed in advance of the public reading.
