THE GHOST OF A SMILE
Performed by Nicholas Collett
Adapted and Directed by Gavin Robertson
Two of Charles Dickens’ creepy tales, with a comic twist Tales with a tingle, but also a giggle! Two yarns to chill and charm! Stories with a shiver and a smile! Like “The Woman in Black” – but funnier, and with fewer people!
“The Queer Chair” from “The Pickwick Papers” tells the story of Tom Smart, who, sheltering from a storm for the night, gets more than he bargained for…from a wizened and debauched piece of furniture!
“The Ghosts of the Mail” – After a well-lubricated supper in the Old Town of Edinburgh, Jack Martin climbs into a compound containing the derelict skeletons of old coaches and falls asleep, whereupon he wakes as a passenger on an eighteenth-century mail coach, with three creepy companions.
Like “The Woman in Black” – but funnier, and with fewer people!
“Robertson and Collett are exceptional!” – KANSAS CITY STAR
“Compelling to watch…” THE GUARDIAN
