The Dark Carnival Unplugged at Eden Court

We have teamed up with Vanishing Point Theatre Company again, this time offering students a reduced ticket offer and an exclusive Q&A with Biff Smith (lead singer of A New International) and Robert Jack (Ulster American, Rhinocerous, Black Watch) after the show!

Information about the performance:

The Dark Carnival: Unplugged is an informal, rousing music and theatre show: With songs, spoken word and a free (though not compulsory!) glass of whisky for everyone, it tells the story of newcomers to the afterlife who are surprised to 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 (lead singer of A New International) on acoustic guitar, accordion and vocals and award-winning actor, Robert Jack (Ulster American, Rhinocerous, Black Watch) 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.


This opportunity is available exclusively to students on our network courses – if you’re unsure whether you qualify please check out our Course Finder.
