Promo: Ghost Story: When Darkness Falls. Curve 12-15 April




Wednesday 12 – Saturday 15 April

Ghostly drama When Darkness Falls comes to Leicester’s Curve theatre next week, Wednesday 12 to Saturday 15 April, as part of a UK tour.

Written by James Milton (known to many as popular historian James Bulgin) and acclaimed playwright Paul Morrissey, this chilling theatrical production takes you into the dark pasts of the bewitching island of Guernsey. Through sharing tales from its turbulent history, including World War Two and the Great Storm of 1987, When Darkness Falls reveals disturbing truths and asks the question: what really is a ghost? 

Remember, these are just stories … aren’t they?

This powerful production stars Tony Timberlake and Thomas Dennis. 

Tony Timberlake plays the role of John Blondel. Timberlake has recently appeared in the UK tour of Maggie May and in the world-famous The Mousetrap. His previous West End credits include Hairspray, Chicago, Monty Python’s Spamalot and Les Misérables.

Thomas Dennis plays the role of The Speaker. Dennis has recently appeared in Max Webster’s Henry V at the Donmar Warehouse. Prior to that, he played the roles of Albert in the UK Tour of War Horse and Christopher in The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time.

On a stormy night on the small island of Guernsey, a young paranormal expert joins a sceptical history teacher to record the first in a series of podcasts based on the island’s incredible folklore and paranormal history. 

As the young expert regales his horrifying stories, the teacher learns that we all have our own truth. Our own stories. And our own ghosts that haunt us. Ghosts that bring the past, present and future together in unexpected ways. 

Are you brave enough to face your fears? Tickets for When Darkness Falls, the haunting hair-raising tale, are on sale now. To find out more and book, visit, call 0116 242 3595 or visit Curve’s Box Office in-person.
