“It Was a Dark and Stormy Night…”

It’s 2019 and books are having a rough time. They’re neglected, disrespected, and overshadowed year after year by their younger, more glamorous cousins YouTube and Netflix.

So today, for one day only, some of our most beloved works of literature are demanding our complete, undivided attention as they remind us just why they’ve been our favourites all along.

Prepare for a journey through secret gardens and treasure islands, past wonders of all shapes and sizes, from little women to James’ giant peach. If you’re lucky, you might run into a boy wizard with a lightning-bolt scar, but take the wrong turn and you’ll be lost in a poem without rhyme or reason. Red herrings? Twist endings? Elementary, my dear Watson. Just watch out for great white whales and that very hungry caterpillar!

“It Was a Dark and Stormy Night…” takes our most treasured tales from the page to the stage. It will reawaken the bookworm in all of us.
