Christmas Gothic

  • 9th December 2021
  • 19:30
  • £12 Full / £10 Concessions

From the award-winning creators of Jane Eyre: An Autobiography, Orlando, Female Gothic, The Time Machine, Austen’s Women, I, Elizabeth, Lady Susan and Dalloway.

Christmas: a time to remember the past, celebrate the present, and look to the future; a time of feasts and festivities; of holly and mistletoe; a time of visits and visitations.  A time of ghosts.

Come in from the cold and enter into the Christmas spirit as a dark and spectral woman tells haunting tales of the festive season, lighting a candle to the frailties of human nature and illuminating the cold and chilling depths of the bleak, wintry dark…

Dyad Productions resurrects a Victorian tradition by presenting three seasonal tales of terror to scintillate the gooseflesh for dark Christmas nights.  Adapted and performed by Rebecca Vaughan.  Directed by Elton Townend Jones.

Praise for Dyad Productions:

 ’Truly extraordinary… one of the most exciting young performers on the British stage’ (British Theatre Guide)

 ’A macabre masterpiece.  Ghostly, grisly and gorgeous.  Don’t miss it’ (Three Weeks)

 ‘Holds the audience in the palm of its hand... a near-perfect piece of theatre’ (The Scotsman)

‘Perfection... Vaughan is simply sublime’ (Huffington Post)
