The Shadows

19:00, Tue 7th December 2021 - Sat 11th December 2021 at Corpus Playroom / Larkum Studio
Christmas Vacation

A strange scent… An eerie sound in the darkness… A hauntingly quiet memory… What did you just see in The Shadows?

Down a narrow alley, through a creaky old door, in a confined space, a truly terrible event awaits...

A new twist on tales of old; an uncomfortably intimate, unique horror experience that is not for the faint-hearted.
Are you brave enough to endure three terrifying Cambridge stories which will take your breath away?

ACT 1- ACQUISITION by Sara-Jane Arbury
Jenny is attending a talk at the Fitzwilliam Museum and custodian Jeff is going to escort her there. Whilst waiting for the lift, they ruminate on life and death and share past traumas before being subjected to a supernatural haunting!

ACT 2- THE CHAMBER by Matt Wilkinson
Three students on a ghost hunt have found their way into an ancient abandoned chamber under St John’s College. But why have they been allowed in? And what do the scratches on the walls mean? They’re going to discover that there are some doors that should never be opened.

ACT 3 – DRIVE by Leigh Chambers
A woman with a guilty secret seeks refuge in a hotel room, but soon discovers that there’s nowhere to hide when those beyond the grave want vengeance, and are willing to use all their powers to get it.

The show runs without interval and contains strobe lighting
