In February 2020, hundreds of University of Nottingham students were thrilled by DARKFIELD’s immersive FLIGHT experience at Lakeside Arts on University Park Campus. DARKFIELD now returns – direct to your phone.
DARKFIELD RADIO is a brand-new project, delivering unique 20-minute experiences only available on certain days and times, just like a radio show. Taking part is simple. Buy a ticket (for 2); download the app with your friend; enter your code. At your designated hour, don your headphones and let the narrative unfold. With two shows to choose from, which world will you visit?
DOUBLE explores the Capgras delusion, a terrifying condition in which the sufferer is convinced that a loved one has been replaced by an exact replica with malign intentions. Is your partner who they say they are? You can experience DOUBLE with a partner via zoom.
In VISITORS you meet a dead couple looking for a temporary solution to their permanent condition. This show is for two people to experience together in their living room. VISITORS cannot be experienced with a partner via zoom – it will only work if you are with your partner.

a new online play by Torben Betts
Stranded 205,000 miles from Earth in a crippled spacecraft, astronauts Jim Lovell, Fred Haise and Jack Swigert fight a desperate battle to survive.
77 hours into their mission they lose all communications with Earth as they pass around the dark side of the Moon. Further from home than mankind has ever been, in total darkness and facing impossible odds of survival the Astronauts confront themselves and each other.
