You Left Me in the Dark is a piece of new writing inspired by Chekhov’s The Seagull that explores the themes of abandonment and devotion. Spun Glass Theatre’s intimate improvisational style creates a fresh theatre event for a teenage to adult audience. The music of Florence + the Machine reflects the passionate nature of the characters’ love affair with each other and the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament.
