Following last year's sold-out show, we are delighted to welcome back Nunkie Theatre Company with two more classic ghost stories.
This critically acclaimed one-man show is an atmospheric retelling of two tales by M. R. James, the master of the English ghost story. Performed in the magical setting of the Victorian Jubilee Hall at Larmer Tree Gardens.
Every Christmas, Montague Rhodes James, an eminent medieval scholar, would write and perform new tales to entertain friends in his rooms in King’s College, Cambridge. A century later, the stories by M. R. James thrill, terrify and amuse as powerfully today as they ever did. Robert Lloyd Parry recreates James’s entertainments in a truly atmospheric way, illuminated by candlelight and underscored by dread.
WARNING: CONTAINS MOMENTS OF PLEASING TERROR
Suitable for ages 13+
IMPORTANT NOTE ON DIRECTIONS: Satnav does not get you to the Larmer Tree Gardens entrance. Please follow the brown tourist signs with flower symbol or visit www.larmertree.co.uk/directions
'Lloyd Parry is always absorbing, and catches the sense of dread that gives James his originality.'
**** THE TIMES
'Lloyd Parry's beautifully modulated performance is perfectly judged to send an enjoyable chill down the spine.' **** METRO
'This is story-telling at its finest . . . A gloriously ghostly and chilling winter treat.'
On Christmas Day 2013 and Christmas Eve 2017, Robert Lloyd Parry appeared on television portraying M. R. James in Mark Gatiss' BBC Two documentary, M. R. James: Ghost Writer.
