Raise Dark /reɪz dɑːk/ verb To raise dark is when a poker player makes a raise during the opening round of betting without looking at his or her cards. A move with inherent risk, usually designed to create action.

Raise Dark exists to create theatre with an edge. We aim to generate new work that sheds light on the darker side of modern life.
