Edith in the Dark is a haunting glimpse into the nightmarish inner world of an author whose reputation for cosy childhood innocence is only half the story.

Fascinating, unnerving story of the childrens' author's 'other side'. Part of her personality influenced by her unhappy life experiences perhaps? But a nicely-balanced trio of characters alternating roles in Nesbit's exploration of some of her slightly chiling adult writings. Hope we at Radyr will perform it soon.
