When Darkness Falls

A truly spine tingling collection of terrifying tales. Dark, atmospheric, and chilling.

I had to write this – I couldn't believe it. You are really good.”

“I am now a bit scared to go home in the dark, you have fired my imagination. I feel spooked. I've loved it tonight.”

Under a Starry Sky
Three old pals gather around a fire in the local dock pub. They have not met for many years. They begin to tell their tales…

Travel from Liverpool 's nineteenth century haunting harbours to a land of sunshine and hope. Meet the feistiest of old ladies who still have a roving eye for a young Romeo and cunning magicians who cast spells that cannot be undone.

Prepare to get goose bumps, laugh out loud and relax in the dulcet tones of one of Great Britain 's best-loved enchanters of tales. Not to be missed.
45 mins interval + 35 mins

Audience comments:
"What a perfect evening. You have a great gift. Thank you."
"Fantastic performance left us all “spellbound”
“I am slightly embarrassed. That Liverpool tale made me cry. It was so moving. I will go home tonight and think of poor Julia. Excellent.”
