A blue telephone.

You Stupid Darkness!


Audience Suitable for all

Four volunteers, four hours, four times a month.

Telling strangers on the other end of a phone that everything is going to be okay. But when the outside world is disintegrating, and hopes and fears become entangled, is it possible to find community in catastrophe?

Winner of multiple prizes at The University of Manchester’s 2024 theatre awards, You Stupid Darkness! directed by Amari Creak and Jenifer Hosking is a fresh production of Sam Steiner’s acclaimed play – an Off-West End awards finalist for Best New Play in 2020.

It chronicles a struggle for optimism in a challenging world – finding humour and compassion amid the chaos.

One not to be missed.
