“People find me. When it’s dark.”
A woman locked in a windowless cell, with no memory as to who she is, or how she arrived there.
When spiritualist medium Mrs Lyall requires a new assistant, this nameless woman seems the perfect candidate.
But as the woman’s past begins to reveal itself, so do new powers neither are prepared for.
“Matter may decay, but the spirit persists. The energy we exude remains.”
Alistair McDowall’s previous work at the Royal Court includes all of it, X and Talk Show (Open Court). Royal Court Artistic Director Vicky Featherstone directs.
Alistair McDowall (all of it, X) returns to the Royal Court with an unsettling new play, The Glow.
Directed by Vicky Featherstone. Performed by Fisayo Akinade, Rakie Ayola, Tadhg Murphy and Ria Zmitrowicz. Music by Nick Powell.
