The ghost story is set to play at the theatre from the 23rd November.
The play written by James Milton and Paul Morrissey is a new ghost thriller that will have a limited run at the Union Theatre until the 12th December.
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.
Directed by Paul Morrissey, the production is set to star Will Barton as John Blondel and Alex Phelps asThe Speaker.
Talking about the news Director and co-writer, Paul Morrissey, says, “In many ways, maybe we’re all haunted. By the past. By regret. By shame. By things that have embedded themselves deep within us. A kind of trauma, that we relive. As we ‘see’ these events unfold, again and again, it’s quite clear that ghosts are very real. When Darkness Falls is a spine-chilling new play about the power of stories. Perhaps most importantly, the ones we tell ourselves.”
The shows illusions will be designed by John Bulleid, lighting design by Ben Bull and sound design by Tom Marshall.
