The Dark
Written by Ken Duncum

What are you afraid of? The Dark is a supernatural romance set in the 1920s during the height of the Spiritualism craze.

New Zealand sisters Mina and Hannah Fox are a sensation on the British and US séance circuit, until the editor of a psychic journal encourages them into a mid-Atlantic showdown with the most celebrated medium-buster of the age, ex-stage magician Harry Price. Tragedy ensues.

Their struggle to grasp happiness is blighted by the fate overhanging Hannah, and menaced by a hidden malevolent shadow.

Guilt must be exorcised, deceptions revealed, layers of truth peeled back, and a great sacrifice made before Mina and Harry can find their way into the light.

Tickets are available from the Circa Box Office. To reserve a ticket, please call the Box Office on +64 4 801 7992.
