REVIEWS: Darktales, Edinburgh Festival

Darktales Ediburgh Festival

Described as the scariest show at the Edinburgh Fringe, we were keen to see what critics thought of Dan Clarkson’s new production of Darktales festuring Andrew Paul and Sean Ward. Darktales has a revised script by Tim Arthur, former editor-in-chief of Time Out Magazine. This chilling, creepy play explores the myths and the stories that scare us at night, and the two men who write them.
