Info: You and your family are stuck inside a live-action video game! How will you escape?! Pick options off the screen in this fun, fear-filled interactive adventure. Will you: A) Find light switch? B) Scream? C) Kick a Pokemon? If you win, there are terrible prizes! But if you lose, The Dark Room keeps whichever of your parents you like less. With over 4M YouTube hits and sell-out shows worldwide, this is a bonkers game show for families featuring challenges, danger and jokes about Minecraft (unless they threaten to sue). Can you escape the Dark Room?

Sat 21 April | 4pm ages 9+

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.
