The Dark Carnival – Citizens Theatre @ Tramway

A music and theatre spectacle, The Dark Carnival features sixteen performers and musicians, including BAA’s Natali McCleary, Ramesh Meyyappan, and Harry Ward.

The show tells the story of newcomers to the afterlife who discover that death is not actually the end. Incredulous at their continuity, they form their own necropolitan community where every night is party night: songs get sung, love gets made and whisky flows.

Created and performed by Vanishing Point and A New International, The Dark Carnival will transport audiences into an unexpected vision of the afterlife full of long-lost lovers, half-hearted ghosts, and songs.

The Dark Carnival will be presented at Tramway whilst the Citizens Theatre building undergoes an exciting two year redevelopment.

Runs from 19 February to 2 March
