Darkside

Darkside

 
 

Darkside by Tom Stoppard & Pink Floyd 

Directed by Pálína Jónsdóttir

The play chronicles the story of a young woman named Emily McCoy who's studying moral philosophy. Gifted with brilliance, deep intuition and extraordinary sensibilities she journeys into the realm of the unknown in the quest for answers for her thesis question "What is the Good”? Propelled by a calling to save the world, Emily embarks on an odyssey of unforeseen events accompanied by mysterious voices, encountering miscellaneous characters of thought experiments that leave us wondering about the place for the human heart in our world of fucked-upness. 

This masterfully crafted play by Stoppard, displaying mental, existential, environmental and socio-political themes, originally composed for BBC Radio 2, is now being adapted by me for stage for the Burning Coal Theatre Company in Raleigh, NC.
