The Book of Darkness & Light comes to Oxford

On Tuesday 21st June, The Book of Darkness & Light will visit Oxford for the very first time, bringing three original, spine-tingling tales to the Off Beat festival


“Mesmerising”, “Super creepy”, “High class storytelling”, “Atmospheric”

The Book of Darkness & Light is a new storytelling experience from writer Adam Z. Robinson and musician Ben Styles. Using a combination of engaging storytelling and live violin music, the performances are unique, charming and thrilling.

 

“Legend has it that many years ago, from deep beneath these streets, a book of strange and terrifying tales was unearthed…”

With the ancient book in hand, The Storyteller weaves three thrilling tales as The Musician fills the room with a beautiful, haunting score. The tales range from moving to macabre: In Girl, Dancing an ageing stage star becomes jealous of her step-daughter’s talent, taking a gruesome decision to get her out of the picture. In Mine, a man awakens in a pitch-black cave only to realise he is not the only inhabitant. In The Bonehouse, a historian comes face-to-face with the gruesome past of an abandoned village lock-up.

On Tuesday 21st June, as part of the inaugural Off Beat festival, The Book of Darkness & Light will give the first of a series of performances taking place throughout 2016.

Having already thrilled over 1,500 people in Leeds’ oldest church as part of Light Night, played several sell-out shows at arts spaces and theatres and appeared on BBC Radio Leeds, Oxford will be the next city to be terrified and delighted by The Book of Darkness & Light.

Audience Reactions to The Book of Darkness & Light:

“Mesmerising”, “Super creepy”, “High class storytelling”, “Atmospheric and creepy”, “Beautifully haunting”, “Awesome live horror stories”, “Made me shiver”, “If you get the chance … go see it!”, “Wonderful imagery and fantastic storytelling”, “Riveting”.
