‘NOT TO BE MISSED.’
Guardian

You awake to find yourself in a Dark Room! You, the audience must choose an option! Will you: A. Find The Light Switch? B. Abandon Hope? C. Darren?

Come and play the world’s only live-action text-based adventure game! It’s a choose-your-own-adventure, so choose it!

The Dark Room is an anarchic comedy game show that fuses retro gaming, improv and sadism into an incredible immersive event. The whole audience play as contestants in a challenge that’s racked up over 4 million YouTube hits, won awards at the Brighton and Edinburgh Fringes, and alarmed special guests including Mark Watson, Robin Ince, the bloke who played Xander in Buffy, Sam Simmons and gaming industry legend Ian Livingstone.

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 – TERRIBLE PRIZES FOR EVERYONE!
