A candle in front of a mystic circle

In Lights Out, death is always on the cards

PRESS RELEASE · London, United Kingdom ·

The team behind the Merely Roleplayers podcast bring their brand of high-drama improvised storytelling to the London Horror Festival 2021 in Lights Out, their debut live stage show.

Part séance, part campfire tale, part roleplaying game, Lights Out is a departure from the usual podcast live show format. Co-produced with long-time collaborators and London Horror Festival veterans Blackshaw Theatre Company, the show translates Merely Roleplayers’ high-stakes storytelling and ensemble chemistry into a tense, intimate, undeniably theatrical performance.

Lights Out is a tragic horror told by dwindling candlelight, full of twists and turns even the performers can’t see coming. The outcomes of key events are decided by drawing tarot cards; the only certainty is that when the final candle goes out, the story ends with no survivors.

Will anyone find hope before darkness falls absolutely? The only way to find out is to attend this one-night-only experience.
