Comedian John Robertson returns for the 7th consecutive year at the Fringe with his 5 star, cult-hit show The Dark Room. This is a cross between a comedy show, a game show and a pantomime. Remember those text-based adventure games; 'You come to a fork in the road, do you go left or right?' This is that...LIVE!
The audiences are trapped in a Dark Room. They must choose options from the screen to try to escape.
A) Find the Light Switch
B) Cry for Help
C) Go North
It's a choose-your-own-adventure, a test of skill, wit and cunning. It's strange, insane and addictive, and to top it all off, there are TERRIBLE prizes!
The Dark Room is a surreal, incredible show for anyone who's ever touched a video game, seen a video game or has done neither of those things but is willing to be thoroughly disturbed by John Robertson.
As seen at Insomnia Gaming Festival, EB Games Expo, MCM ComicCon, Underbelly Festival and more.
