In Benighted, the literary seeds of one of Britain’s greatest ever playwrights are beautifully evident in the rich dialogue, unforgettable characters and gripping tension – now fully realised on stage for the first time. The world premiere of the stage adaptation of Benighted ties in with the Priestly Renaissance that is sweeping our stages.

Set in the heart of wildest Wales on a treacherously stormy night where it seems the world itself is going to end, Philip and Margaret Waverton are left with no choice but to abandon their Austin Tourer and seek refuge in an old dark house. Soaked, hungry and exhausted from their ordeal, the Wavertons’ relief at finally being indoors rapidly slips away as it becomes devilishly apparent that their gracious hosts for the evening, the peculiar Femm Family (and indeed the house itself), may be far more frightening than the Welsh mountainside they seek to escape.
