A BUNCH of northerners will be trying to put the willies up audiences at the Barbican with the first part of a vampire trilogy to mark Halloween.
Yorkshire-based theatre company Slung Low aim to creep out theatre goers with their latest production They Only Come at Night which combines live performance, dance, music and digital projection.
Visions, the first part of the trilogy, is a walk-through atmospheric experience, where the audience will be taken from the Barbican's box office to a secret location revealing a fast-moving world where fantasy and reality merge - with allegedly terrifying consequences.
Every night in every town something happens at the edges of where people want to look: A stabbing at a bus stop; a pool of blood on a door step; a murder in a car park. Many are blamed but perhaps the real truth is lurking in the shadows and about to be revealed.
This year has been Slung Low's busiest year to date; the company has recently performed the second part of their trilogy, Resurrection, at The Lowry in Salford.
They returned to The Lowry in October with another new work Beyond the Frontline, a large scale, outdoor experience exploring the friction and ties between the civilian population and the armed forces, before their run at The Barbican starting tomorrow.
They Only Come at Night runs at the Barbican until Sunday, November 15. Tickets cost £10 from www.barbican.org.uk or 0845 120 7550. The show is only suitable for people aged 16 and over and has a running time of 35 minutes.
