Ghost Stories by Candlelight, Larmer Tree Gardens

Following last year's sold-out shows, we are thrilled to welcome back Nunkie Theatre Company to bring a seasonal shiver to the West Country. This critically acclaimed one-man show features the wondrous Robert Lloyd Parry as M. R. James, the master of the English ghost story, in an atmospheric retelling of two great tales.

The shows are taking place on Friday 15th February at Larmer Tree Gardens and Saturday 16th February at The Barton Inn.

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. Over a century later, the stories by M. R. James thrill, terrify and amuse as powerfully today as they ever did. Robert Lloyd Parry's resemblance to James has left many an audience member dumbfounded, and he recreates James' entertainments in a truly atmospheric way, illuminated by candlelight and underscored by dread.
