about this event
A trio of delightfully thrilling new ghost stories, set to the haunting sounds of the violin.
The Book of Darkness & Light contains within it some of the most chilling tales ever told. Supernatural mysteries stir from its pages.
You feel a prickle on your neck. Your blood stills. A monstrous thing creeps in the shadows. Is it all in your mind? A trick of the light? Or something far more sinister?
One thing is for certain: these stories will give you shivers.
After a 28 date tour of their gothic storytelling show The Book of Darkness & Light in 2017, Robinson and Styles return with their most chilling tales yet. The Storyteller (Robinson) weaves three spellbinding tales as The Musician (Styles) creates the perfect ghostly atmosphere with a specially composed violin score. The ghost stories are filled with terrifying folklore, ancient superstition and contemporary hauntings.
In ‘The New Priest of Black Pines’ a doctor visits a remote isle to treat her sick brother, only to discover that ancient and barbaric rituals are still being practised. In ‘Dead Air’ a young man calls a late night radio station to disclose a family secret that has haunted him for a decade. In ‘A Horror in Porcelain’ a wealthy and eccentric millionaire sends his assistant to collect a notorious antique doll with a strange and horrifying history.
A co-production between Harrogate Theatre, Square Chapel Arts Centre and LittleMighty.
