Hailed by the British Theatre Guide as “a truly staggering, relentless theatre experience,” Dark Noon offers an outsider’s perspective on American history. Framed through the lens of a fictional film production, seven South African actors embody traditional American archetypes—cowboys, Indians, prospectors, missionaries, and more—all intent on subduing both the land and one another. The nation’s 300-year path from lawlessness to civilization is mirrored by the show’s ever-evolving stage, which transitions from barren desert to bustling town as the narrative unfolds. Replete with searing themes of violence, genocide, and oppression, the Reumert Award- winning show presents an unflinching glimpse of how the West was really won.

This performance contains mature content and themes.
