The Book of Darkness & Light in Association with LittleMighty presents
Unhomely: Three Tales of Terror
The fabled Book of Darkness & Light lets loose an unholy trinity of hidden horrors: stories of murder, witchcraft and childhood monsters. Three gripping, gruesome tales, each with a different house at its heart… Though, as you will discover, these tales are anything but homely.
In the The Reckoning of Patience Whitaker, a peaceful and industrious couple settle near a small textile town in 18th-century Yorkshire. When the town’s mayor, formerly a Witchfinder, accuses the pair of devil worship, events take a horrifying turn.
In Shirley’s Monster, a renowned writer sets fiction aside and tells her own true story. The tale of her tempestuous childhood is one of conflict and cruelty and confirms, once and for all… that monsters are real.
In ‘Tis Thy Presence, a housemaid at a shambling mansion writes home about the violent murder of her employer. All evidence points to a robbery gone wrong. But some in the house are starting to behave suspiciously. And the corpse is not behaving as the dead should.
The show combines chilling storytelling, an original score and fully integrated BSL to create an unforgettably thrilling theatrical experience.
From the award-winning writer of Upon the Stair (“Everyone needs to see this show.” ★★★★½ The Reviews Hub) and co-writer of Smile Club (★★★★ The Guardian).
