The Canterville Ghost Information

If you’ve got it, haunt it.

Four audacious artistes perform Oscar Wilde’s spine-chilling ghost story for your delight and delectation.

Interspersed with their own sensational acts, a comedian, a magician, a psychic and their charismatic compere tell the story of Sir Simon de Canterville, who disappeared mysteriously 300 years ago – after being accused of murder.

When the thoroughly modern Otis family move into Sir Simon’s former residence they’re warned about the fearsome phantom that haunts the Hall. But has anyone warned the Canterville Ghost about them?

A gloriously ghoulish and uproarious vaudeville spectacular from award-winning theatre company Tall Stories.

(Warning: performance includes moments of puppet profanity.)
