Old Woollen: A Warning to the Curious – Candle-Lit Ghost Stories for Halloween

October 26 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

£13 + Booking Fee. Doors 7pm. Show starts 8pm. Unreserved Seating.

Two spine-chillers by M R James, the master of the English Ghost Story, performed in candlelight by Farsley favourite Robert Lloyd Parry of Nunkie Theatre, who appeared as the author in Mark Gatiss’s BBC2 Documentary ‘M R James: Ghost Writer.’

“Lost Hearts” was among the first stories the author wrote and it offers one of his most memorable villains, the predatory scholar Mr Abney. It is paired here with perhaps James’s most poignant and personal work, “A Warning to the Curious”, in which a young archaeologist is haunted and hunted by the guardian of an ancient treasure.

The English seaside has never looked so menacing.
