Gripping, lyrical, and strikingly bold, Remain in Light, penned by acclaimed New Zealand playwright Stephen Sinclair, will make its theatrical premiere at Takapuna’s Pumphouse Theatre. Exploring the visual and spiritual qualities of light in a world of darkness, Remain in Light brings together a 17-strong cast with sound and lighting technology, to create a uniquely immersive experience.
One morning the sun fails to rise. People are puzzled, then frightened, then panicked. In the endless darkness, small groups of survivors hunt for food, warmth and, above all, light. When one man finds a magical source of light his power becomes limitless. For people will give everything, do anything, in order to see…
A beautifully poetic and impressionistic play, Remain in Light exposes mankind’s true nature in grappling with a dark reality.
