Author K.C. Finn lives in Chester and she is the author of more than 20 novels in the four years she has been in the writing business. K.C. is multi-award-winning, having received the coveted Chanticleer Best Gothic Fiction 2016 award for her novel The Book Of Shade, a 78,000-word fantasy novel that took just 16 days to pen. She has also received accolades from the RONÉ Awards for Best Young Author Paranormal Fiction 2015 (The Mind’s Eye, 2nd Place) and the Readers’ Favourite Award for Best Young Author Science Fiction book of 2016 (Legion Lost, Commended Finalist) and is currently a semi-finalist for Best Young Author Book of The Year in the Dante Rossetti Prize 2017.
In the world of horror fiction, K.C. Finn has also shared the charts with the likes of Stephen King and Dean Koontz for her worldwide best-selling story collection Sinister Sentiments. In theatre, her debut production of Dark Moments at Chester Little Theatre in October 2016 was the beginning of a new era, with future productions to follow, such as Left Luggage, which will be touring three theatres (and hopefully Davenham too!) in July/August 2017.
The Dark Moments cast includes Kelly Cowley (daughter of ??? and Arthur Jones) whose superb Rise & Shine wowed audiences at Davenham in March 2016 and Sue Elliott who will also be remembered for her roles in Effie’s Burning, Breathing Corpses and Medea at Davenham.
K.C. Finn’s Dark Moments explores life through the lens of three one-act plays where black comedy and gritty realism collide.
In PASSENGERS, cabin fever takes hold of a band of holidaymakers on a late night flight, suspicion and paranoia driving them to breaking point.
MALE BLACK sees a group of friends sitting down to a dinner party, when their common acquaintance Jimmy Black arrives. Black drives a rift into the group, one that can only be resolved by murder.
Finally, in OTHER PEOPLE’S VIOLENCE, the themes of isolation and loneliness are explored. Four people live in neighbouring flats, and one of them is about to die. The story follows the lives of these characters through their disasters, revelations and breakthroughs, until the grim prophecy comes true.
Dark Moments runs from Thursday 27th April to Sunday 30th April inclusive (four nights)
