Event description
John Robertson's The Dark Room.

About this Event

Welcome to the world’s only live-action, text-based adventure game. It’s strange, insane and addictive. It’s a comedy night, a gameshow and a pantomime all in one.

How do you play? The audience is trapped in a retro videogame with a sadistic end-of-level boss. Choose your options, survive the abuse simulator that is the improv comedy overlord John Robertson, and escape to win £1000 – or, be brutally murdered by the rest of the crowd!

Now, will you:

A) Find the Light Switch

B) Go North?

C) Abandon Hope?

This high-octane show is the brainchild of comedian & cult leader John Robertson. Filled with stand-up, appalling prizes and more audience chanting than you’d get at a protest – it’s a gut-busting rock n’ roll experience for everyone who buys a ticket.

John has performed The Dark Room to crowds of thousands at comedy and gaming festivals around the world. Most recently: Insomnia Gaming Festival, London Film & ComicCon, Sci-Fi Weekender, Edinburgh Fringe Festival, FringeWorld Perth, Leeds International Festival, Sheffield Doc/Fest AND a monthly residency in London at the prestigious Soho Theatre.

“NOT TO BE MISSED!”

The Guardian

“What a marvellous, maddening concept this is from the twisted mind of Robertson”

Chortle

“Will have you crying with laughter”

Broadway Baby

“Watching people tackle the challenge and fail is one of the funniest sights around. Don’t miss it.” The Daily Telegraph

“One of the most innovative and original comedy shows around”
