Welcome to the world of the terminally indecisive!
Room is back - new and improved! What is The Dark Side of the Room?
It's a comic play with elements of absurdist theatre, a bit of slapstick, and a lot of wordplay. Welcome to the world of the terminally indecisive!
One of its inhabitants is Alan Chipperfield. If there’s one thing he knows, it’s that he’s not sure.
London, 1984. Alan needs to pay his overdue electric bill by 5pm or his power will be cut.
The stakes are high as Alan stares down the barrel of a life engulfed by darkness without hope and unable to see where he’s going. And that's if the power doesn't go out!
Who are the creatives? The show is performed by Agata Dmochowska, Charlie Hill and Fletcher Paterson.
It is written and directed by Con Coutis who is also a performer in the show. Coutis is a writer, comedian, and filmmaker studying a theatre and linguistics major at Monash
