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 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” – Edinburgh Festival 2016 Review, ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
“Watching Logan work is like being privy to a wonder of nature and remains with you… A true masterpiece of solo performance” – The Edinburgh Guide, 2015 – ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Gareth Armstrong has developed and directed many successful solo shows, including his own award-winning Shylock. Hauntings is underscored by a beautiful, original and specially commissioned score by the award-winning RSC composer, Simon Slater.
