Are you brave enough to take to your bed, alone, in the dark and submerge yourself in an immersive audio experience which plays on your darkest childhood fears?

I want you to believe…to believe in things that you cannot.” – Bram Stoker

You have been chosen and we thank you for your sacrifice.
In return we offer you the opportunity for eternal life – but there are conditions.
You could, of course, wait to see what the future might bring.
You could take your chances on a cure for mortality.
The cure is coming – but it is not coming fast enough for you.

Inspired by Bram Stoker’s Dracula, this audio show for one, which you enjoy or endure in your own bed, is a creepy re-visiting of our childhood fears of things that linger in the dark. It explores the quandary of eternal life and wonders what price you would settle for to achieve it.

Commissioned by Bram Stoker Festival in 2020, ETERNAL has since enjoyed critical acclaim and scared audiences across the globe.

Spooky… invokes the remembered fears of childhood, when creaking floors and dark underbeds caused terror.
Irish Independent

“Most online theatre struggles to get beyond the screen, to be present in the way live performance is present. By turning your house into a stage, this one, fleetingly, becomes a doppelganger for the real thing.”
The Guardian

This is among Darkfield’s most effective shows, playing on the universal fear of the monster under the bed and things that go bump in the night.
Time Out Melbourne

Not for the faint-hearted…An experience to be enjoyed or endured alone, this is Darkfield’s scariest show so far.”
The Reviews Hub


Age Suitability: Suitable for ages 14+. This experience contains horror and a feeling of threat and is not suitable for those with nervous disposition…

Duration: 20 minutes.
