  • Ghost Stories by Candlelight

Oh, Whistle, and I’ll Come to You, My Lad – a tale of nocturnal horror on the Suffolk coast – is considered by many to be the author’s masterpiece.

It is beautifully complemented here by The Ash-tree, a story of witchcraft and vengeance down the generations. Every Christmas, M. R. James, an eminent medieval scholar, would write and perform new tales to entertain friends in his rooms in King’s College, Cambridge. A century later, the stories by Montague Rhodes James thrill, terrify and amuse as powerfully today as they ever did. Robert Lloyd Parry recreates James’s entertainments in a truly atmospheric way, illuminated by candlelight and underscored by dread.

Suitable for age 13+

Venue: Acorn Theatre
