Blackshaw Theatre Company and Merely Roleplayers to Return to the London Horror Festival
Blackshaw Theatre Company and Merely Roleplayers will present a double bill of chilling storytelling at the London Horror Festival 2021. Theatregoers can whet their appetites with Blackshaw's 6th annual Scare Slam before digging into Lights Out, the Merely Roleplayers podcast's debut live stage show.

The Scare Slam

Lovers of scary stories, unite. Adding the fear factor to increasingly popular spoken word
nights, storytellers from across the Horrorfest and beyond will share their worst (or should
that be best?) nightmares at Blackshaw's sixth annual Scare Slam.
Prepare yourself for a night of chilling tales from both sides of the line of veracity.

Lights Out

The team behind the Merely Roleplayers podcast bring their brand of high-drama improvised
storytelling to the London Horror Festival 2021 in Lights Out, their debut live stage show.
Part séance, part campfire tale, part roleplaying game, Lights Out is a departure from the
usual podcast live show format.
Co-produced with long-time collaborators and London Horror Festival veterans Blackshaw Theatre Company, the show translates Merely Roleplayers' high-stakes storytelling and ensemble chemistry into a tense, intimate, undeniably theatrical performance.
Lights Out is a tragic horror told by dwindling candlelight, full of twists and turns even the
performers can't see coming. The outcomes of key events are decided by drawing tarot
cards; the only certainty is that when the final candle goes out, the story ends with no
survivors.
Will anyone find hope before darkness falls absolutely? The only way to find out is to attend
this one-night-only experience.
