“A one man show of brilliant simplicity” RTE GUIDE, IRELAND
A Pleasing Terror - SOLD OUT
Over a century after their first publication, M. R. James' Ghost Stories of an Antiquary remain the most admired supernatural tales in the English language. Originally performed by the author for friends in King’s College, Cambridge, Nunkie Theatre Company now brings two of the eeriest and most entertaining back to life, in a gripping one-man show.
Set in a medieval town in the French Pyrenees, Canon Alberic’s Scrap-book follows a young antiquary as he discovers the devil in the details of an old book.
A ghoulish revenge is enacted within a work of art, before the helpless eyes of a museum curator in Oxford in The Mezzotint.
By M. R. James
Performed by R M Lloyd Parry
