Join in situ: theatre group this month for an evening of spooky tales in the atmospheric setting of Cambridge’s oldest building, the Leper Chapel. Taking place on Saturday 10 December, Ghost Stories is a one-man show performed by Richard Spaul, who’ll be sharing a duo of chilling treats.
“I’ll be telling you two fantastic ghost stories, by two great women writers,” says Richard. “The American novelist Edith Wharton, who claimed to be frightened by ghosts despite not believing in them, and the Irish writer Elizabeth Bowen – who was interested in ‘life with the lid on and what happens when the lid comes off’. Both tales, as well as being deliciously scary, have remarkable twists and turns that have made me think about the ghost story genre in a completely new way.”
The performance starts at 8pm and tickets are £12.
