THEATREANDARTREVIEWS.COM

English audiences love a good mystery. In Murder in the Dark, writer Torben Betts has stretched the genre to its limits, adding a sprinkling of horror, a dollop of melodrama, and the psychological complexity of a thriller, defying expectation with some delicious twists, leaving us guessing up to and even beyond the final scene...sharp performances work on many levels, as the play descends into the deeper and darker landscape of the human psyche.

STAGETALK MAGAZINE ★★★★

If you leave the theatre trying to piece together what you have just viewed, then chances are you've had a great night out... Like the perfect horror film, the play is a concise 90 minutes, meaning the pace never slackens and the apparitions never outstay their welcome. A genre-bending twisted night out that will stay with you long after the dark journey home.
