YOU AWAKE TO FIND YOURSELF IN A DARK ROOM! You, the audience, are trapped in an interactive, retro gaming nightmare; choose an option, find the way out, and escape The Dark Room!

If you succeed, you’ll take home £1000… but if you fail YOU WILL DIE! For you are not alone in The Dark Room; the merciless overlord of improv, John Robertson, is here to guide you through an hour of expertly crafted chaos and anarchy. And in the end, eeeeeverybody plays!

So will you:

A) Find the Light Switch?

B) Go North?

C) Abandon Hope?

Originally an interactive YouTube game created in 2012, the Dark Room went viral and has attracted more than 4 million views. Improv king John Robertson then transformed the game into a live show, and with no two shows ever the same, The Dark Room continues to sell out high capacity venues at Insomnia Gaming Festival, the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, EB Games Expo, PAX Australia, London Film & Comicon, MCM Comic Con and more! In September 2018, the Dark Room was adapted into an actual video game, topping the Steam charts in the first few days of release and gaining critical acclaim worldwide! ‘One of the most clever, hilarious and innovative takes on the genre I’ve ever seen’ ‐ PC Powerplay.
