    A ghost story.

    "Some people believe in ghosts. Some don’t. Since their existence is not proved beyond all possible doubt, to many they remain folklore: the stuff of legend. Spooky Tales of beasts and spirits, spectres, and ghouls. But to many others, ghosts are quite real."

    Starring Olivier nominated actor and former Blue Peter presenter Peter Duncan, whose theatre credits include Sebastian Faulks’ critically acclaimed Birdsong and Regent Park Theatre’s Macbeth.

    When Darkness Falls is a brand new spine-chilling ghost story that delivers a twisted, terrifying and thrilling tale that will “leave you cowering in your seat.” (The Guardian)

    On a stormy night on the small island of Guernsey, a young paranormal expert joins a sceptical history teacher to record the first in a series of podcasts based on the island’s incredible folklore and paranormal history. As the expert regales his horrifying stories, the teacher learns that we all have our own truth. Our own story. Ghosts that haunt us. That bring the past, present and future together in unexpected ways. Ways that can threaten to unsettle everything we think we know.

    Inspired by true events, this powerful new production by James Milton and Paul Morrissey draws us into dark pasts, reveals disturbing truths and explores the power of stories. Perhaps most importantly, the ones we tell ourselves.

  • "When Darkness Falls is built on powerful, electric storytelling, weaving and confusing what is real with frighteningly realistic legends yet to be proven."

    Gemma Gibson, Fairy Powered Productions

    "Inspired by true events, the play is beautifully written by James Milton and Paul Morrissey and the performances are compelling. It brings the past, present, and future to a fascinating conclusion leaving the audience to explore their own perceptions of life and the paranormal."
