Wing does have a Black Background theme, available on the first 
preferences page.

To use another theme, on Linux you can set the "Use System GTK" 
preference and use system-provided themes.

Otherwise, you can download the theme and place it into 
bin/gtk-bin/share/themes inside your Wing IDE installation (or 
Contents/MacOS/bin/gtk-bin/share/themes on OS X), restart Wing, and 
select the theme in preferences.

Note that only themes that do not use a theme engine or use one of those 
in /bin/gtk-bin/lib/gtk-2.0/2.4.0/engines in your Wing installation will 
work with Wing IDE.  We cannot make any guarantees for performance or 
results when using themes not included with Wing IDE.  Some of them 
trigger memory leaks and other problems.
