A PLEASING TERROR
Two Ghost Stories for Christmas by M. R. James with Nunkie Theatre
On Sunday the 11th December 2022 at 7:00 pm

M. R. James (1862 - 1936) is largely regarded as Britain's finest master of ghoulish suspense and supernatural fiction. He began writing his ghost stories as an entertainment for his friends at King's College Cambridge where he would read a new tale each year at Christmas.

In celebration of a great literary beginning, we invite you to join us at Guys Hospital Chapel, to gather above the crypt and discover by candlelight how James’ gothic imagination still has the power to terrify and amuse.

This gripping one man show performed by Nunkie Theatre retells two of the earliest and eeriest ghost stories. In Canon Alberic’s Scrap-book, a young Cambridge antiquary discovers the devil in the details of an old book in a medieval town in the French Pyrenees… In The Mezzotint a ghoulish revenge is enacted within a work of art, before the helpless eyes of a museum curator in Oxford…

Tickets £15 including a delightful gin cocktail and 20% donation to Guy's and St Thomas' Charity. Please click here to purchase.
