You awake to find yourself in a Dark Room. You, the audience, must choose an option. Will you: A) Find the Light Switch? B) Cry for Help? C) Go North?
Come and play the world’s first live-action text-based adventure game! It’s a choose-your-own-adventure! So choose it!
The Dark Room blurs the lines between comedy and game show and the audience play as contestants. The rules are simple:
1 – Options appear on the screen.
2 – Audience calls out the option they want.
3 – You’re either right, or dead.
4 – In the end, everybody plays!
Originally an interactive YouTube game, the Dark Room went viral and attracted more than 4 million views. Comedian John Robertson then transformed the game into a live show, and so far, has enjoyed sell out shows at Insomnia Gaming Festival, the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, EB Games Expo and MCM Comic Con.
'Not to be missed.'
‘You have to see the Dark Room at least once in your life.’
‘You must see this show.’
‘Great fun, nostalgic, but also a fresh angle for comedy.’
