The Haunting by Hugh Janes

2 March @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

£14 – £16

In an ancient, crumbling mansion, two men stumble across a dark, terrifying secret that will forever change their lives.

When a book dealer, David Filde, is employed by Lord Gray to catalogue the estate’s impressive library, he finds an incredible array of rare books. However, as a series of strange and unexplained events conspire to keep Filde from his work, he realises that if he is to convince his sceptical employer that the mysterious phenomena, he is experiencing are real, they must journey together to the very edge of terror to discover the source of the terrifying visitations.

This gripping adaptation of some of Charles Dickens’ most haunting works, based on his spine-tingling tales of the unexpected, will have you on the edge of your seat!

The Haunting will feature Neil James (starring as Lord Gray) and Ross Muir (starring as David Filde). The play will be directed by Nick Young (ex-RSC and former Artistic Director of the Connaught Theatre, Worthing)

‘For lovers of traditional theatre and ghost stories…The Haunting is a must-see show’. Theatre Southeast

Great pace and terrific suspense… guaranteed to raise goosebumps’.

Maidenhead Advertiser ‘Gripping… and fascinating too’ British Theatre Guide.
