Tony Timberlake said “I’m delighted to be embarking on this tour of When Darkness Falls. Theatres have had it tough recently but are a vital part of our lives and I hope we entertain, thrill and maybe even scare our audiences with this production.”

Thomas Dennis said “It’s funny being an actor, my imagination is too vivid to watch scary plays and films…I can’t sleep for weeks… however, give me the chance to play in one and you’ll find me bouncing off the walls. This play is full of challenges. I just can’t wait to start merging folklore, history and trauma together to create my own version of ‘The Speaker”
Inspired by true events, James Milton and Paul Morrissey’s powerful production takes us into dark pasts, reveals disturbing truths, and asks the question: what exactly are ghosts?
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 young expert regales his horrifying stories, the teacher learns that we all have our own truth. Our own stories. And our own ghosts that haunt us. Ghosts that bring the past, present and future together in unexpected ways.
