Professor Gabriel Stokes takes lodgings at The Sea House, on a desolate stretch of the East Sussex coast. No sooner has he arrived than the troubled history of the house comes to the fore with unexplained and mysterious happenings. Having enlisted the help of Tom Beauregard, an American spiritualist, the two embark on a terrifying journey to discover the truth. Following the traditions of the finest ghost stories, Darker Shores is a gripping and shadowy tale of suspense: playfully intelligent, emotionally resonant and genuinely chilling. Directed by Amy Feeley, we will be using both modern and historical special effects to give out audience a night of fright they will never forget. Originally performed at the Hampstead Theatre in London in 2009, starring Mark Gatiss and Julian Rhind-Tutt.
