The Dark Room (18+)

Saturday, January 15

Share:

You awake to find yourself in The Dark Room…

Welcome to the world’s only live-action, text-based adventure game. It’s strange, insane and addictive. It’s a comedy night, a gameshow and a pantomime all in one.

How do you play? The audience is trapped in a retro videogame with a sadistic end-of-level boss.

Choose your options, survive the abuse simulator that is the improv comedy overlord John Robertson, and escape to win £1000 – or, be brutally murdered by the rest of the crowd!

Now, will you:
Find the Light Switch
Go North?
Abandon Hope?

So what the actual **** is this?
This high-octane show is the brainchild of comedian & cult leader John Robertson. Filled with stand-up, appalling prizes and more audience chanting than you’d get at a protest – it’s a gut-busting rock n’ roll experience for everyone who buys a ticket.

John has performed The Dark Room to crowds of thousands at comedy and gaming festivals around the world including Insomnia Gaming Festival, London Film & ComicCon, Sci-Fi Weekender, Edinburgh Fringe Festival, FringeWorld Perth, Leeds International Festival, Sheffield Doc/Fest AND a monthly residency in London at the prestigious Soho Theatre.

Age guidance 18+.
