Going Dark (2022) is a photo coffee-table book by Australian photographer Troy David Johnston. The photo book contains a series of images of the closed theatres across the West End and Greater London during the first lockdown of the Covid-19 pandemic. Along side the images are testimonials and commentaries from a range of theatre professionals that speak to their memories of these theatres and their experience of the closures.

The first editions of the book (ISBN: 978-1-3999-1378-2) were published in April 2022 by Matcham Books in the United Kingdom.


The images in the series are predominantly in black and white, but also contain sections in colour. These sections are usually the theatre marquee or a distinct architectural element to a particular theatre. There are a mixture of wide angle shots of almost deserted streets where the theatres are located, to shots of the building facades, through to close ups of locked stage doors.
