My Eyes Went Dark

Matthew Wilkinson

Oberon Books

“An extremely powerful play about justice, revenge and forgiveness...what matters is less its documentary veracity than Wilkinson’s uncanny ability to get inside the skin of a man tormented by grief.” —The Guardian

Nikolai Koslov, a Russian architect and father, avenges the death of his family in a plane crash—by killing the air traffic controller he holds responsible. Maintaining he can’t remember his crime, Koslov serves four years in a Swiss prison before being suddenly released. Back home he is greeted as a national hero and is even given a ministerial position. But guilt and remorse cannot stay buried forever. Two actors perform a gripping tale of loss, blame and forgiveness, inspired by real events.

Matthew Wilkinson’s previous plays include Sun Is Shining (King’s Head Theatre, BAC Time Out Critic’s Choice Season and 59E59 Theatres, New York), Red Sea Fish (Brighton Pavilion Theatre and 59E59 Theatres, New York) and co-author of the UK adaptation of Hideki Noda’s Red Demon (The Young Vic and Tokyo). His short films have been screened internationally, including selections in London, Berlin, Paris, Siena and Nashville.
