Theatre at The Leper Chapel: The Demon Lover

19 May 20188pm£12 (£10 concessions), available in advance at or on the night from 7.30pm.
Leper ChapelTheatre

Storytelling and drama by in-situ, featuring The Demon Lover, Elizabeth Bowen’s tale of guilt and retribution (one of the greatest short stories of all time); 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, be warned that 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 in a small atmospheric building.
