A Gripping and ghostly tale of suspense...
It’s Christmas 1875 and Professor Gabriel Stokes (Max Caulfield) takes lodgings at The Sea House cared for by Mrs Hinchcliffe (Juliet Mills), 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 (Michael Praed) 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 scary’
'The chilling events are not just on stage, they seem to seep out across the audience...Characters had depth but were not overplayed by a very talented cast, leaving the suspense and shocks all the greater!'
