Leper ChapelEducation and learningHistoryStorytellingTheatre

Over a century after they were first published, the ghost stories of M R James retain their power to terrify and amuse. This gripping one man show retells two of the earliest and eeriest.

In Canon Alberic’s Scrap-book, a young Cambridge antiquary discovers the devil in the details of an old book in a medieval town in the French Pyrenees.

In The Mezzotint a ghoulish revenge is enacted within a work of art, before the helpless eyes of a museum curator in Oxford.

Performed by R M Lloyd Parry of the Nunkie Theatre Company.

***** “Wonderful, magical storytelling”, The Daily Mail

£12/£10. To book www.nunkie.co.uk

We can guarantee you’ll be in for an evening of atmospheric entertainment.
