The Signal-Man and other Horrifying Tales

Starts at 7:00 pm

Celebrate Halloween weekend with a dramatic reading of three of Dickens's most infamous ghost stories.

Dominic Gerrard returns to the Dickens Museum to perform The Signal-man; The Ghost in the Bride's Chamber and Captain Murderer.

As a boy, Dickens was terrified by the violent horror of Captain Murderer - a gruesome bedtime story, told by his nurse, who never spared him 'one word of it'. His interest in the supernatural fired from a young age, Dickens would go on to write some of the world's best loved ghost stories. In The Signal-Man a strange figure lurks in the mouth of an isolated tunnel, appearing each time before a tragedy on the line. Then in The Ghost in the Bride's Chamber a young traveller arrives at an inn, late one night, and learns the horrifying truth of what lurks there ...

Dominic's performance of A Christmas Carol has been described as 'an exceptionally effective and powerful interpretation of the Christmas story' (The Stage ****) and 'a worthy rival to Simon Callow's one man Carol' (Independent on Sunday).

Cost: £18
