New Year’s Eve.  A car crash on a lonely road brings famous but troubled singer Danny Sierra and his extended family to an isolated holiday cottage in rural England.  From the moment they arrive, a sequence of inexplicable events begins to occur… and then the lights go out.

This thrilling new ghost story by acclaimed writer Torben Betts will thrust you into darkness and have you on the edge of your seats until the final chilling twist.

Director Philip Franks said, “Horror films have been my guilty pleasure since I was a morbid child. Now is the time to find out whether many years’ worth of jump scares and terrible nightmares can be put to good use. We’ll also see whether my more adult theory – that horror often puts its finger on what worries us most as a society at any given time – will also hold true.“

Torben Betts’s previous work with Original Theatre includes InvincibleCaroline’s Kitchen and the online play Apollo 13: The Dark Side of the Moon.  Other work includes Get Carter, an adaptation of The Seagull for Regent’s Park Open Air, The Unconquered (Best New Play 2007 Critics’ Awards for Theatre in Scotland), The Company ManA Listening Heaven (nominated for Best New Play at the 2001 TMA Awards) and Mummies and Daddies (shortlisted for the Verity Bargate Award 2000).
