It'll be all white on the night
Have you ever woken up and not known where you are? Most of us have at some point though usually it's preceded by enough alcohol to kill a moose the night before. Who knows, maybe you did kill a moose? Best not to think about it too much.

Three characters with very different backgrounds are involuntarily thrown into an enclosed room together where the only thing they have in common is fear of their captors.

Audrey Cadzow plays Aletha, an emotionally guarded mathematician with a short fuse when it comes to irrational behaviour. Grady is played by Joshua Godfrey, a kind-hearted person who instinctually helps others whenever he can. Finally, Karl is played by the enigmatic Daniel Hurst, a temperamental orphan with a chip on his shoulder.

Though the show starts in a relatively claustrophobic setting, there's more than meets the eye in this tense scenario. Not everything is as it seems, and it's a testament to the enigmatic writing of Serena Tas that the audience is taken on a journey of twists and turns that keep you enthralled at every step of the way.

With such a limited cast, the show would be nothing if it weren't for the strength of performance of those involved. Each actor brings their character to life in ways that makes you feel the tension of claustrophobia beyond the fourth wall. In preparation the actors spent 24 hours locked in a room together, applying unpleasant method acting techniques to understand the nuances of the tasks ahead.

It's a fascinating concept that's likely to sell out across its limited run of shows. Dare you enter the White Room?
