"A must see... Dark Matter is more enjoyable and emotional than Heart of Darkness without losing the damning commentary of Conrad’s classic" - Kelly Bedard, Myentertainmentworld
"Despite the genre and subject matter, the script doesn’t rely on spaceship tech-speak or nihilistic doom-and-gloom, instead creating believable, accessible characters in an otherworldly setting" - Carly Maga, The Grid
"It relies on the audience to have an imagination and the actors to be magnificent. I can’t speak for the audience, but I can speak for the cast: they were superb and took me on a trip I won’t soon forget" - Georgy Perry, Mooney On Theatre
"An inspired finished product that was as funny as it was heartbreaking, as philosophical as it was experiential."
