Riveting Adaptation of Joseph Conrad’s Heart of Darkness
Ivy Substation (Culver City, CA)
Written and performed by Ovation Award Winning actor Brian Finney, this adaptation of Heart of Darkness is a brilliant interpretation of a classic work that will leave a lasting impression. Published over 100 years ago, Joseph Conrad’s novella follows Charlie Marlow on his mission to recover a cache of ivory from a renegade trader named Kurtz. Along the way, Marlowe discovers the futility, ineptitude and folly of European Colonialism, and learns deep truths about the nature of light and the heart of darkness. Developed over five years, Finney’s adaptation presents the story as a brisk 80-minute monologue.
