The Gaiety Theatre

10th - 12th November
The Service Players present Night Must Fall

Experience the beauty of The Gaiety Theatre, the true gem of Douglas...

If you go down to the woods today...hope you don't meet him. Especially as night falls.

In celebration of the Service Player's 80th anniversary, we present the very first play the society ever performed in 1942. Taut psychological thriller "Night Must Fall" by Emlyn Williams showcases some of the Island's amazing acting talent. It has enough tension, atmosphere and suspicion to keep you right on the edge of your seat.
