About Nightmares

Three classic ghost stories – live on stage!

Vengeful spirits, murderous revenants and gruesome promises kept from beyond the grave – every horror imaginable is conjured in this uniquely terrifying experience. Nightmares is a gothic show that will leave you quaking in your seat… and dying for more.

The show features three of the most spine-tingling tales ever written – 'The Judge’s House' by Bram Stoker, 'The Kit-Bag' by Algernon Blackwood and 'John Charrington’s Wedding' by E Nesbit – all brought to life by one of UK theatre’s most riveting storytellers, Adam Z. Robinson.

The Book of Darkness & Light’s previous work includes a number of Adam’s original plays, including SHIVERS (“A must-see production” – Northern Soul) and the BSL-integrated show UPON THE STAIR (“Everyone needs to see this show.” – Reviews Hub).

His production of A CHRISTMAS CAROL has been produced nationally and internationally, and most recently he’s been out on the road with HAUNTED, which audiences praised as “enthralling! Totally gripping” and “a play worthy of the West End” with “incomparable acting”. So, join us for three tales of terror… if you dare!
