The new hit thriller, Murder in the Dark, is coming to The Lowry next January 2024.

This thrilling new ghost story by acclaimed writer Torben Betts is set to “thrust you into darkness and have you on the edge of your seats” until the final twist.

The story follows a car crash which brings famous but troubled singer Danny Sierra and his extended family to an isolated holiday cottage in rural England. From the moment they arrive at the cottage, a sequence of “inexplicable events” begins to occur.

The show stars Tom Chambers as Danny and Susie Blake as Mrs Bateman.

Tom Chambers is known for his roles as Sam Strachan in Holby City and his role as Max Tyler in Waterloo Road.

Susie Blake is perhaps best known for playing the Continuity Announcer in Victoria Wood: As Seen on TV, as well as her regular roles of Bev Unwin in ITV’s Coronation Street and Hillary Nicholson in BBC’s Mrs Brown’s Boys.

Director Philip Franks said: “Horror films have been my guilty pleasure since I was a morbid child. Now is the time to find out whether many years’ worth of jump scares and terrible nightmares can be put to good use.

“We’ll also see whether my more adult theory – that horror often puts its finger on what worries us most as a society at any given time – will also hold true.”

The show comes to The Lowry on Tuesday January 23 to Saturday 27.
