From the creators of Austen’s Women and I, Elizabeth comes this autumnal Hallowe’en treat…
An artist, gripped by the clutching fingers of a dead past; a scientist, defying nature in the dark realm of the senses; an expectant father, driven mad by creeping shadows…
In the unquiet darkness between life and death, a haunted woman tells strange tales of the macabre and terrifying; eerie stories that have gathered dust and been forgotten. Until now.
In the thrilling tradition of M R James and Edgar Allan Poe, this literary spine-chiller celebrates three lost gothic works from the great Victorian female writers.
Adapted and performed by Rebecca Vaughan (Dalloway, I, Elizabeth, Austen’s Women). Directed by Olivier Award Winner, Guy Masterson (Morecambe).
