In an ancient, crumbling mansion, two men stumble across a dark and terrifying secret that will change their lives forever.
When a book dealer, David Filde, is employed by Lord Gray to catalogue the estate’s impressive library, he finds an incredible array of rare books. However, as a series of strange and unexplained events conspire to keep Filde from his work, he realises that if he is to convince his sceptical employer that the mysterious phenomena he is experiencing are real, they must journey together to the very edge of terror to discover the source of the terrifying visitations.
This gripping adaptation of some of Charles Dickens’ most haunting works, based on his spine-tingling tales of the unexpected, will have you on the edge of your seat!
The Haunting will feature Neil James (starring as Lord Gray) and Ross Muir (starring as David Filde). The play will be directed by Nick Young (ex-RSC and former Artistic Director of the Connaught Theatre, Worthing)

Mask Wearing & Covid-19
We ask that you do not attend the theatre if you have tested positive for covid-19 and are within your 5 days of isolation. Mask wearing is no longer mandatory but we support an individuals choice to wear a mask throughout the building.
The theatre has a fresh air flow system which pumps fresh air from outside into the auditorium – this can mean if the outside air temperature is low the theatre can feel cool.
