Low in the Dark

OVERVIEW

  • Playwright

    Marina Carr 

  • Synopsis

    Low in the Dark explores the myths and misconceptions between the sexes. In Bender and Binder's world, men are a necessary irritant. Their time is spent reliving their relationships, for the most part unsuccessful events. Baxter and Bone, ignorant and innocent of women, spend their time imagining the Ideal Woman. Orchestrating this furore is Curtains, who has her own version of the story of Man and Woman.
