Getting Dark is an award -winning dramatisation of the true story of The Ribbon of Truth by Kal Gibson. The play is a moving and dark exploration of a young girl’s descent into blindness.
For six -year old Karen, the world is gradually shrinking and getting dark. Colours that meant so much to her are slowly ebbing away. She needs artificial light all day and all through the night. Mum and Dad love her but have a new baby and are finding it increasingly difficult to cope with their daughter’s condition. They make a life -changing decision.
Getting Dark will be BCP’s entry into the Lighthorne and Oxford Drama Network One Act Festivals for 2023.
