Night Slows DownWritten as a response to recent events in global politics, Don’t Look Away and bAKEHOUSE will present a powerful new production, Night Slows Down, exploring how small choices and moral failures can lead inexorably to a disaster point.

Written and directed by acclaimed Sydney theatre-maker, Phillip James Rouse (Inner Voices, A Property of the Clan, The Legend of King O’Malley), Night Slows Down imagines a world where far right extremists have won the election. Where ordinary citizens riot in the streets and human rights are denied. On the horizon, storms clouds are gathering.

In the face of a dying democracy, the vilification of experts and looming environmental disaster – Night Slows Down sees the scale of the problems we face globally, telescoped down to a single family.
