The Haunting (2020)

Oct 17th to 24th 2020

Written by Charles Dickens adapted by Hugh Janes

Directed by Keith Railton

Adapted for the stage by Hugh Janes from the ghost stories of Charles Dickens, this is a gripping thriller from the literary master of suspense. In an ancient, crumbling mansion, sheltering from the howling winds that tear across the surrounding desolate moorland, two men stumble across a dark and terrifying secret that will change their lives forever. Be prepared for edge of your seat scariness!

Reviews of the Play

"Gripping The Haunting certainly is, and fascinating too as the stories told by the two men tie them together is more ways than could possibly be imagined...Well recommended but - as they say - don’t watch it alone!" Sheila Connor, British Theatre Guide.

"if you have an appetite for haunted houses and terrible deeds gone unpunished, for voices from beyond the grave and things that go bump in the night, this two-hander will be right up your alley." Cameron Woodhead, Sydney Morning Herald
