In a townhouse in Copenhagen works Hans Christian Andersen, a teller of exquisite and fantastic children’s tales beloved by millions. But the true source of his stories dwells in his attic upstairs, her existence a dark secret kept from the outside world.
Dangerous, twisted and funny, Martin McDonagh’s new play travels deep into the abysses of the imagination. A Very Very Dark Matter premiered at the Bridge Theatre, London, in October 2018.
Macabre, funny and ultimately serious . . . confirms that McDonagh is a genuine original with a talent to disturb.
A magnificent wild-card, possibly McDonagh’s most magnetic work this century.
