The Darkroom

THE DARKROOM, a new play by Steve Lambert, directed by Pameli Benham, was performed at the Alma Tavern Theatre, Bristol in October 2011.

Early post-war England and a wife is trying to return to the normal civility of life with a husband haunted by the dark memories of battle. 1949; make do and mend.

 "All three performers excel here...  Gerard Cooke does his best work this reviewer has seen as James, a febrile, frightened creature who has been trying to suppress his own gifts and the dark memories they bring back" - Venue


"The tension and quiet conflict between these characters is beautifully demonstrated. Charlotte Ellis as Faye, Gerard Cooke as James, and Duncan Bonner as William, were exceptional and performed with such tenderness and delicacy towards their fragile and troubled characters." 8/10 - Bristol Evening Post

 "A fine portrayal by Gerard Cooke, of intense preoccupation and introverted paranoia, skilfully executed." -
