A live 80s style Text Adventure from Aberdeen's Premier Cabaret show.

The Trickery is back with a whole new season of shows. Featuring some of the best cabaret acts from around the world, every show is different as we scour the scene to bring you everything that's hot in cabaret. From showmen to showgirls to show-offs and everything in between. We aim to allure, amaze and amuse you at The Trickery. 

You awake to find yourself in a Dark Room! You, the audience must choose an option! Will you: A. Find The Light Switch? B. Abandon Hope? C. Darren? 

Come and play the world’s only live-action text-based adventure game! It’s a choose-your-own-adventure, so choose it! 

The Dark Room is an anarchic comedy game show that fuses retro gaming, improv and sadism into an incredible immersive event. The whole audience play as contestants in a challenge that’s racked up over 4 million YouTube hits, and won awards at the Brighton and Edinburgh Fringes. 

The rules are simple: 
1 – Options appear on the screen. 
2 – Audience calls out the option they want. 
3 – You’re either right, or dead. 
4 – TERRIBLE PRIZES FOR EVERYONE!
