The Glow was the 2018 Pinter Commission, an award given annually by Lady Antonia Fraser to support a new commission at the Royal Court Theatre.
Alistair McDowall's previous work at the Royal Court includes X and Talk Show (Open Court). Royal Court Artistic Director Vicky Featherstone directs.
“I see faces.
When I close my eyes.
I don't know them.
But they know me.
They want things from me.
And I don't know-
How to give them what they want.”

But as the woman's past begins to reveal itself, so do new powers neither are prepared for.
“We never leave this earth entirely.
The energy we exude remains.”
