Darker Shores

Hampstead Theatre, Eton Avenue, Swiss Cottage, London, United Kingdom, NW3 3EU

Darker Shores is a gripping and shadowy tale of suspense written in the tradition of classic ghost stories.

Darker Shores is set in the Christmas of 1875, when  Professor Gabriel Stokes takes lodgings at The Sea House on a desolate stretch of the East Sussex coast. No sooner has he arrived than the troubled history of the house comes to the fore with unexplained and mysterious happenings.

Having enlisted the help of Tom Beauregard, an American spiritualist, the two embark on a terrifying journey to discover the truth.

Michael Punter, the playwright of Darker Shores, has written extensively for theatre and radio, including Come To Me and The Glad House for the BBC.

Darker Shores stars Tom Goodman-Hill, who recently appeared in the universally acclaimed Enron, and Julian Rhind-Tutt, known for his role in quirky sitcom Green Wing.
