Remain in Light

One morning the sun refused to rise. And then the morning after that. And the morning after that. Perhaps it was tired of what it saw, day after day, down on the sinful earth. People were puzzled, then frightened, then panicked. This is an account of events that occurred in a time out of mind before the records began, events that befell our distant ancestors. Or are they events that belong in the future, a prophesy of what awaits our children’s children’s children? One or the other; perhaps they are one and the same. Regardless of when, the sun has stopped shining and groups of surviving humans hunt for food, warmth and, above all, light.

A beautifully poetic and impressionistic play for a large cast written for drama school students and secondary school students.

Expandable cast.
