About the Show Less...

The Sticking Place commemorates the 70th anniversary of the death of Montague Rhodes James, one of Britain's best-known ghost-story writers, with two new adaptations. Read More >

The Disappearance has been adapted from the James tale by Daragh Carville (winner of the 1997 Stewart Parker Award and the 1998 Meyer-Whitworth Prize), while Terror Season favourite William Stewart (adaptor of HP Lovecraft’s Reanimator in 2004) will present a new version of James’ chiller The Rose Garden for Natural Perspectives Theatre Company.

MR James adaptations will play over Halloween including Sean McCann’s version of There Was A Man Dwelt By A Churchyard. The season ventures into even darker terrain with a revival of Anthony Neilson’s first play – Normal, a shocking and controversial exploration into the mind of Peter Kurten – the Dusseldorf Ripper of the 1930’s. Directed by Bill Buckhurst.
