Stranger Things-Inspired play ‘Out of the Darkness’ debuts tomorrow at Valletta Campus Theatre

Still don’t have any plans for this upcoming public holiday? Luckily, a new original play inspired by the Netflix hit TV series ‘Stranger Things’ will be opening at the Valletta Campus Theatre this Thursday. From the mind of UK writer and director David Hirst Samuels, Flawless Theatre Company presents ‘Out of the Darkness’.

Set in the fictional town of Jackson Falls, the story takes place during Halloween in 1986. When a raging storm hits the town, a mysterious girl is discovered by a group of teenagers after seemingly emerging out of nowhere. Her arrival prophesies the arrival of an evil spirit set to wreak havoc on all the townspeople’s souls, and the group of friends find themselves burdened with the responsibility of saving Jackson Falls. 

From time travel to portals, the play promises a thrilling story with twists and turns that’ll keep you on the edge of your seat. The performance will last between the hours of 8pm and 10:30pm, although you are encouraged to arrive early and enjoy some pre-show 80’s hits from Jackson Falls Radio Station that’ll be sure to set the mood and transport you back in time. Not to mention, you can expect a guest performance by Alan Montanaro, director of Malta Drama Academy and local actor known for his pantomimes. 

If you’re a huge Stranger Things fan and you’ve got nothing planned this weekend, this is just the right event for you. It’ll be a while before Season 5 comes out anyway. Why not check this out in the meantime? And if you can’t make Thursday, there’ll be shows on Friday and Saturday as well. Get your tickets while you still can!
