Description

World Premiere. A black comedy on mental health based on real events. Sam turns up on Ash's doorstep pulling his wheelie bag – it seems like he's decided to move in. The evening ends in a way no one would ever imagine or believe – except it happened. Flashbacks show how Sam got to this point and illustrate Ash and Sam's relationship over the years.

Strong and well performed play, portraying mental health and friendship.
Emotional, sad, great dialogue and clearly identifies a person struggling with their mental health and the effect it has on them and those around them. Also portraying the bond of friendship and the impact of helping a person through their dark times .
Would highly recommend

Not the best show in the world but the actors were both really professional and it is worth a watch just for the social message of the performance

A dark place is an extremely powerful play that examines suicidal thoughts.

Superbly acted, and a fantastic script.
