A new spine-chilling ghost story, WHEN DARKNESS FALLS, will play a limited season at the Union Theatre in London from 23 November to 12 December 2020.
Set on the island of Guernsey, John Blondel, a history teacher, runs the local Historical Society. Tonight, as part of the Society’s weekly vlog, a young paranormal expert has been invited to give a talk on the island’s paranormal history. As John films, the Speaker’s stories – many of which are based on true events – unfold and delve into dark pasts, revealing disturbing truths and unforgettable terrors.
Written by James Milton and Paul Morrissey, and directed by Paul Morrissey, the production will star Will Barton as John Blondel and Alex Phelps as The Speaker.
WHEN DARKNESS FALLS will be played to a socially distanced audience, in line with the current guidelines.
Producers Paul Morrissey Ltd, Christopher Wheeler & Molly Morris comment:
“We are thrilled to welcome live audiences back to the theatre with this brand new ‘edge-of-your’ seat thriller. It has been a tough time for everyone, and so we couldn’t be more excited to be one of the first shows to get up and running in London. Our seating capacity has been reduced and arranged to comply with government social distancing regulations, but this won’t stop us from giving audiences the most incredible night out.
We are also delighted to be able to offer our own ‘Seat Out to Help Out’ subsidy to get people back into the theatre.”
WHEN DARKNESS FALLS will feature lighting design by Ben Bull and sound design by Tom Marshall, with illusions by John Bulleid, an Associate of the Inner Magic Circle with Silver Star, whose other theatre credits include Harry Potter and The Cursed Child.
WHEN DARKNESS FALLS is produced at the Union Theatre by Paul Morrissey Ltd, Christopher Wheeler and Molly Morris.
