Ghostly Theatre - gothic theatre retold.

There is nothing we like more than a good Ghost Story… and there is nothing better than gothic theatre to retell some of the plays and fiction written on the subject. From acclaimed authors such as Henry James (The Turn of the Screw), M R James (Monkey’s Paw etc.), Charles Dickens (The Signalman) and Agatha Christie (The Séance) we bring these stories to life in immersive experiences where the location becomes the heart of the action. There is no passive theatre seating where you watch the action from a distance - it will happen all around you, sights, smells and sounds producing a truly immersive and unnerving experience.

From the retelling of The Turn of the Screw in an Old Manor House (Wymering Manor becoming Bly Manor) to The Signalman told in an old Railway station - we will find the location that brings the story to life. Dracula told in a Norman Castle… yes we can do that…
