It's Dark Outside 2014

house and Theatr Mwldan present the Perth Theatre Company production: It's Dark Outside 




The team behind multi award-winning The Adventures of Alvin Sputnik: Deep Sea Explorer are back with another heartfelt and magical human adventure. Using puppetry, mask, animation and live performance, It’s Dark Outside is a beautiful and emotional piece about growing old, and one man’s journey through his life’s memories – a haunting, mesmerising and bittersweet experience. As the sun sets, an old man and his noble tent go wandering into the wild. The landscape becomes the wildwest of his imagination – his tent becomes his horse; a cloud his dog. Swept up in a surreal world, he is on the run from a mysterious tracker who has caught the scent and is hell bent on hunting him down. While he can try and run away from the life he once knew, he can’t hide from everything.
