ImpAct Theatre to stage intense drama Nightfall

Nightfall, a powerful drama penned by acclaimed Australian playwright Joanna Murray-Smith, is to be staged by ImpAct for their 2020 Spring Production.

The doorbell rings. Emily and Edward Kingsley open the door. On the porch stands a young woman. They have dreamt of this night for seven years. At the same time, however, they have shared the dread that their dream may turn into a nightmare. But nothing has prepared them for the decision they must face which will change the nature of their relationship forever.

Acclaimed playwright Joanna Murray-Smith is renowned for writing stories that closely examine family, love and commitment with compassion and sharp insight, making Nightfall a natural fit for ImpAct Theatre.

Director Patricia Richardson says, “Nightfall is a powerful and intriguing play that explores the complex and often unspoken facets of family relationships that we can all relate to. Our production will draw out all its resonance and promises to be an enthralling and captivating evening of live theatre.”
