insitu theatre: The Demon Lover

17 Nov - 19 Nov 20178.00pm£12/£10
Leper ChapelStorytellingTheatre

insitu’s latest performance features Richard Spaul telling one of the greatest short stories of all time – The Demon Lover – Elizabeth Bowen’s tale of guilt and retribution, as well as Saki’s Gabriel-Ernest, an uncanny exploration of homoeroticism in upper-class Edwardian society, and Beatrix Potter’s Tale of Jemima Puddleduck. If you think this sounds like a children’s story, Richard warns “not in this performance it isn’t”.

The stories are combined with songs by Noel Coward, Screaming Jay Hawkins and others in a complex, provocative and fascinatingly disturbing evening’s viewing.

Tickets available in advance here: or on the night from 7.30pm. Dress warmly.
