Where better to take in a ghostly tale this October than in a distressed chapel in South London? That’s exactly the setting for Haunted, the debut production from Uncanny Collective. Book your tickets now!
The spine-chilling new stage show runs at the Peckham venue for three-nights only on 9, 10 and 13 October 2019.
We are all haunted by the ghosts of our past and tonight, one family will face theirs. As the light fades and shadows fall, their worst nightmares come to meet them in the dark…
Haunted is inspired by the stories of M. R. James, Sheridan Le Fanu, H. P. Lovecraft and other masters of the macabre. It pays tribute to the anthology horror of Amicus Films and the Ealing classic Dead Of Night.
Peckham’s Asylum Chapel is a grade II listed building that was built in 1826 and bombed during World War II.
Haunted is written by the team of Steve Fitzgerald and Paul Linghorn, who have a history of working together. They’ve previously collaborated on Pandemonium Performance productions including Old Scratch Cabaret and Penetrator at the Etcetera Theatre and Tales in the Dark at Abney Park.
Uncanny Collective actually stages it own production of Anthony Neilson‘s Penetrator later this year at the Lion and Unicorn Theatre.
In addition to writing and directing, Fitzgerald also appears in Haunted. He’s joined in the production by Sara Lynam and Connor Meddings. Both Lynam and Meddings have worked with Pandemonium Performance in the past, starring opposite each other in shows including The Wizard of Oz, Grimm’s Fairy Tales and Fear in the Dark.
Haunted runs at Asylum Chapel, Caroline Gardens, Asylum Rd, Peckham, London SE15 2SQ from 9 to 13 October 2019, with performances Wednesday and Thursday at 7.15pm, Sunday at 7.30pm. Tickets are priced £13. CLICK HERE TO PURCHASE!
