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.

Murder in the Dark,a 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 Invincible, Caroline’s Kitchen and the online play Apollo 13: The Dark Side of the Moon. 

Tom Chambers is known for his roles as Sam Strachan in Holby City and Casualty, Max Tyler in Waterloo Road and Inspector Sullivan in Father Brown.

Susie Blake has recently delighted audience across the country with her highly acclaimed portrayal of Miss Marple in The Mirror Crack’d. 

Rebecca Charles’s recent theatre credits include The Dresser (Theatre Royal Bath) and An Ideal Husband (Vaudeville Theatre).

Jonny Green can currently be seen as Charles in Count Abdulla on ITVX.  

Owen Oakeshott’s theatre credits include Witness for the Prosecution (London County Hall)

Laura White until recently played the regular role of Dr Princess Buchanan on BBC 1’s Doctors.
