Dark Tales in Winter

Audio described by Mind’s Eye.

The Open Door by Charlotte Riddell, adapted by Hannah Torrancethe

Signal-Man by Charles Dickens, adapted By Matt Beames

In an abandoned country mansion, a single door guards a dark secret and will not stay closed. At the mouth of a dark railway tunnel, a lone signal-man is assailed by ghostly visions…

In the midst of winter, the Arena Theatre and Beautiful Shadows bring you two classic Victorian ghost stories, each newly adapted for the stage by a contemporary playwright and brought to life by a single performer.In Charlotte Riddell’s mysterious tale a young woman attempts to solve the puzzle of the open door and secure a future for the owner of Ladlow Hall and herself. Dickens’ classic tale tells of a lonely man  driven to the brink of endurance by foretelling visions.

These dark winter tales are set together in an evening of entertainment that will bring a delightful chill to the season.
