When Darkness Falls - West End

The new spine-chilling ghost story, WHEN DARKNESS FALLS, will run at Park Theatre, London, from Wednesday 24 February until Saturday 13 March, with a national press night on Monday 1 March 2021. WHEN DARKNESS FALLS was due to play a limited season at The Union Theatre in London this November, but was unable to open due to the Government’s decision to close theatres in lockdown 2.0. Written by James Milton and Paul Morrissey and directed by Paul Morrissey, Will Barton will play John Blondel and Alex Phelps The Speaker. The audience will be socially distanced. The London run will be followed by a UK tour, beginning at the Everyman Theatre Cheltenham from 16 March. 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.

When darkness falls, our eyesight fails us and our imaginations run wild. In the US premiere of the Discovery Channel/BBC/Terra Mater Factual Studios co-production THE DARK, airing Saturday, October 27th at 9PM ET/PT, one group of brave individuals faces the most primal of human fears, fear of the dark, and utilizes technology to unveil the world after dark and shed light on the riveting nighttime dramas of some remarkable animals such as jaguars, pumas, owl monkeys, and vampire bats. A team comprised of biologists, wildlife experts, and specialist camera crews venture into Central and South America armed with thermal imaging, infrared cameras, and a fierce determination to unravel the mystery of what life is like after dark for the majority of animals who are nocturnal. The team's filming technology allows them to capture natural behavior without disturbing the wildlife, even in pitch black conditions, and throughout the course of their six-month expedition they will have to become creatures of the night themselves. They will wade through crocodile-filled rivers, brave shark-infested waters, discover bizarre creatures and witness never-before-seen behaviors, and come face-to-face with predators in some uncomfortably close encounters. The resulting footage is exhilarating, immersive, and provides viewers a completely new perspective on wildlife at night. This is a hair-raising view humans have rarely been able to witness... until now. THE DARK premieres Saturday, October 27 at 9PM ET/PT.
