Abbaas, 16

The experience that I had at ‘The Dark’ was amazing as I have been able to witness a play that included the experiences of Ugandan child soldiers. I enjoyed being able to connect with the actors as they asked us direct questions. Therefore, an emotional connection occurred between the audience, giving us an inside view of the play. There were references to violent themes in the play which was disturbing. However, it gave a clear message that these problems caused by war need to be solved. I would say that this play is fundamental, as it allows people to realize that there are issues, such as death and kidnapping, happening that need solving.
