Nicholas Collett and Gavin Robertson Present

The Ghost Of A Smile

Sat 22 Oct | 8.00pm | £15.00 | £13.00

Two of Charles Dickens’ creepy tales – with a comic twist. Tales with a tingle, but also a giggle! Two yarns to chill and charm! Stories with a shiver and a smile!

‘The Queer Chair’ from ‘The Pickwick Papers’ tells the story of Tom Smart, who, sheltering from a storm for the night, gets more than he bargained for… from a wizened and debauched piece of furniture!

‘The Ghosts of the Mail’ tells of Jack Martin, who after a well-lubricated supper in the Old Town of Edinburgh, climbs into a compound containing the derelict skeletons of old coaches and falls asleep, whereupon he wakes as a passenger on an eighteenth -century mail coach, with three creepy companions.

Like ‘The Woman in Black’, but funnier, with fewer people!

‘Robertson and Collett are exceptional!’ Kansas City Star

‘Compelling to watch…’ The Guardian
