The Dark Carnival: Unplugged
Don't miss an unplugged version of big, bold, beautiful The Dark Carnival that made its home in Dundee Rep, Traverse Theatre and Tramway only a few weeks ago!
About The Dark Carnival: Unplugged
Sorry, but this event has been and gone!
The Dark Carnival: Unplugged is an intimate music and theatre show: With songs, storytelling and a free (though not compulsory!) glass of whisky for everyone, it tells the tale 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.
Based on the recent five-star theatre spectacular The Dark Carnival, this new ‘unplugged’ version features Biff Smith on acoustic guitar and narrator Robert Jack telling the story of the residents of Dickinsons Brae cemetery - a love story that spans life and death and a celebratory, heart-warming night out.
Inspired by Weimar cabaret, danse macabre, Kurt Weill and Lionel Bart, the songs find themselves in a musical space somewhere in between Leonard Cohen and The Muppets.
While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for The Dark Carnival: Unplugged are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
