“Now it’s dark…”

“I love stories, but I love stories that hold abstractions” – David Lynch


Announcing an evening (or two) of strange and unsettling tales, three original and uneasy readings to be told in a darkened room, three ghost stories that aren’t quite ghost stories…

As well as reading these three stories, I will be making a (perhaps) surprising confession, giving a peek into my creative process, telling a true story of a terrifying incident, and recounting a time when, while pretending to be a journalist for The Fortean Times, I spent the night in “Britain’s Most Haunted Historic Castle.”

CONTENT WARNING:  This event deals with adult themes, contains sudden loud noises and may contain upsetting and / or sensitive material.

NOTE: Ultra-low-level infrasound ‘fear frequency’ audio will be used throughout the performance. Audience members may experience elevated heart-rate, perspiration, sudden spikes in adrenalin production and a coldness in their extremities. You may be alarmed, you may become restless, apprehensive and agitated; though we cannot promise any specific response. All we can promise is that The Lights Will Go Out

A book of the three tales (plus bonus material) will be available to buy on the night (or as part of your ticket) -these limited first editions will also include audio CD They Who Do Not Speak by Unsong -disturbing ambient musics constructed entirely from nocturnal field recordings made at Chillingham Castle, Northumberland.

Why not start your halloween early?

“Black has depth. It’s like a little egress; you can go into it, and because it keeps on continuing to be dark, the mind kicks in, and a lot of things that are going on in there become manifest. And you start seeing what you’re afraid of. You start seeing what you love, and it becomes like a dream.” – David Lynch
