Hauntings is an evening of three tales of the supernatural from two of the world’s greatest writers of ghost stories, E.F. Benson and M.R. James.
From E.F. BENSON, famed for his Mapp and Lucia comic novels, comes:
Naboth’s Vineyard – in which just desserts are meted out to an unscrupulous lawyer, and The Hanging of Alfred Wadham – in which the forces of the devil test a man of faith to his limits.
From the acknowledged master of the ghost story genre, M.R. JAMES, comes:
Oh, Whistle and I’ll Come to You, My Lad – in which a medieval spirit strikes terrorizes an arrogant professor.
With masterful storytelling from the award-winning actor Gerard Logan, Hauntings will transport you to a darker, more sinister world of the unexpected and the unexplainable.
“Logan is astounding….He takes a strong script and flies it to the stars”
