At 7.30pm on 2 July, in the atmospheric setting of The Leper Chapel on Newmarket Road, in situ: theatre group bring us their latest performance, Ghost Stories. Guiding the audience through this one-man ghoulish adventure will be Richard Spaul, who’ll be recounting a duo of terrifying tales.
“I’ll be telling you two fantastic ghost stories by two great women writers – 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.’ That one is set in London during The Blitz,” says Richard. “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.”
Tickets to this evening of eerie entertainment are £12 (£10 concessions).
