This Halloween, join us for a spellbinding, virtual performance of three chilling tales by Charles Dickens.

Sikes and Nancy is a reading that Dickens himself was at first afraid to perform. Fear and betrayal end in tragedy, as Nancy is followed one night over London Bridge and is wrongly accused of betraying Sikes’ gang. Dickens’ brutal and unflinching adaptation of the murder scene in Oliver Twist caused shockwaves among his audiences. It’s horror and humanity resonates as powerfully today as it did in 1870…

The Ghost in the Bride's Chamber follows a young traveller as he seeks shelter for the night. Finally arriving at inn, young Arthur Holliday learns the horrifying truth of what lurks there. This is one of Dickens’ rarer ghost stories, packed with masterful suspense and humour…

The Signal-Man is haunted by a strange figure standing by the mouth of a tunnel. Each time it appears, a terrible tragedy occurs on the line. Written only a year after Dickens himself survived the Staplehurst Rail Crash, The Signal-Man finds the author grappling with his trauma: his conflicted feelings of fear and wonder at the new railways, and a desperate yearning to know in advance where danger lies…

Filmed by candlelight, inside Dickens’ house, actor Dominic Gerrard (RSC/West End) brings these stories chillingly to life, followed by a live Q&A
