People who attend our events whether it be a True Crime Tour, a Theatre Show or even just a Social Night Out often wonder about the company name and what we do?
With a name like Dark Stories then is the company all about scaring the pants off our customers. Not necessarily.
The reason we chose a name like Dark Stories is because we didn't want to limit ourselves to one specific genre. We're attracted to the darkness that naturally gets incorporated into out True Crime tours but we were also keen on creating live interactive theatre shows where we really could scare the customers but in a somewhat safe environment.
The True Crime Tours are really aimed for the purist who wants to learn about real life situations that include a twist, then a twist, then another twist and then a huge twist. The stories are all true but have been put through their paces so that each story on tour delivers a unique experience - our true crime tours are a real journey into another world.
Our Dark Stories Theatre Shows take you into a fictional world where anything can happen. Audiences are written into the story so you are not just passively watching the story unfold. You are in the story in which the characters may appeal for your help, you can ask them questions to make sure their story stacks up and yes there might even be the occasional jump scare.
To summarize our regular weekly crime tours could be pinned down to the following questions.
