Deep Night, Dark Night Tickets

Sam Wanamaker Playhouse, Bankside, SE1 9DT
  • Two sets of eerie evenings will combine in Deep Night, Dark Night at the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse bringing together the greatest ghost stories from the past, chilling tales from the present (including a new story by Jeanette Winterson), and unnerving real-life accounts of our haunted London.

    'Deep night, dark night, the silent of the night,
    The time of night when Troy was set on fire;
    The time when screech-owls cry and ban-dogs howl,
    And spirits walk and ghosts break up their graves,
    That time best fits the work we have in hand.'
    Henry VI Part 2, Act I, scene 4

    Amid political and personal chaos, when all seems upsidedown, horror and terror have always inspired writers to look into the darkness and disturbance of a parallel world to help make sense of our own. And no writer more so than Shakespeare. So as Halloween descends and with him as our guide, we yet again turn to our storytellers to help us make sense of it all.

    On Deep Nights, the first set of tales will be performed, and on Dark Nights, the second set will be staged, so make sure you join for both. Jeanette Winterson’s new story will be performed on Deep Nights (30 October – 2 November). 

    At the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse from 30 October to 5 December 2019, book your Deep Night, Dark Night tickets today!
