"If there was a place you could go to, where the better part of you could live, you would go, wouldn't you?"

The UATG Student Society brings to the Little Theatre once again a serious and demanding play being the stage adaptation of Through A Glass Darkly, Ingmar Bergman's 1961, Oscar-winning movie.

Through A Glass Darkly is an intense and beautiful exploration of mental illness and female independence. Karin is recently discharged from the hospital. Along with her father, husband, and brother, they gather together at their remote beach house for a holiday. As her world begins once again to twist and unravel she is locked away by her husband Martin and ignored by her father and brother. She hears voices in her mind that offer her an escape and freedom she has only dreamt of before.

Even though films quite often do not make good plays this stage, adaptation by Jenny Worton, directed by Guy Henderson, is intense and gripping with outstanding performances from Robert Baulderstone, Abaigh Curry, Riordan Miller-Frost & Cats Seifert. They provide convincing complex characters with varying interactions from hostile clashes to surprising laughable exchanges.

Abaigh Curry gives a compelling performance as Karin, the tortured and vulnerable heroine who sees visions causing her to waver on the brink of insanity. Curry provides moments of strength, humour, low and anguish with her amazing performance.

The production team presents an understated set design with enhanced lighting that captures the perfect atmosphere for the mood of the performance.

Contains scenes depicting disturbing mental illness and strong language.
