Night Slows Down | Don't Look Away & bAKEHOUSE



Written by Phillip James Rouse

MARTIN - On Twitter people are posting flag burning, people throwing bricks at banks and cars.
SHARON - Hooligans.
MARTIN - No. That’s the weird thing. It’s just normal people

Sharon wants to find her husband. Martin wants to be free. Seth seeks redemption. NIGHT SLOWS DOWN imagines a world where far right extremists have won the election. Where ordinary citizens riot in the streets. Where human rights are denied. Where storm clouds are gathering.

Democracy dies. Experts are vilified. Cities collapse. Siblings turn on each other, and families are torn apart. NIGHT SLOWS DOWN sees the scale of the problems we face globally shrunk down to one family.

Written in the days following Trump’s election, this new play by one of Sydney's most important theatre-makers considers how small choices and moral failures can lead inexorably to a disaster point. From the companies that brought you the indie smash hit Inner Voices, and political powerhouse productions The Laden Table and Jatinga - Don’t Look Away and bAKEHOUSE join forces to imagine a world that is only a moment away.
