A Ghost Story for Christmas - Edith in the Dark

Location: Harrogate Theatre, Oxford Street, Harrogate HG1 1QF
Date: 27/12/13 @ 7:15 pm

Celebrated author Edith Nesbitt, who began her writing career as a mistress of horror, escapes her annual Christmas Eve soiree and finds herself in her attic writing room with a young male guest and Biddy Thriceford, her loyal housekeeper.

The trio decide to observe the festive tradition of reading scary stories to help ward off wicked spirits, choosing stories penned by Nesbitt herself.  Yet as they breathe life into these terrifying creations, all is not as it seems. One of the people in the attic is hiding a deadly secret.  For the first time ever, these flesh-creeping yarns have been freely adapted for the stage.  Forget sweet Christmas treats and instead be chilled to the bone.
