Christmas Gothic

Christmas Gothic
Friday, December 13, 2019

From the creators of Dalloway, The Unremarkable Death of Marilyn Monroe, Austen’s Women, I, Elizabeth, The Diaries of Adam and Eve and Female Gothic.

Christmas: a time to remember the past, celebrate the present, and look to the future; a time of feasts and festivities; of holly and mistletoe; a time of visits and visitations. A time of ghosts.
Come in from the cold and enter into the Christmas spirit as a dark and spectral woman tells haunting tales of the festive season, lighting a candle to the frailties of human nature and illuminating the cold and chilling depths of the bleak, wintry dark…
Following the international touring success that was Female Gothic, Dyad Productions resurrects a Victorian tradition by presenting three seasonal tales of terror to scintillate the gooseflesh for dark Christmas nights.

This dark celebration of Christmas is adapted and performed by Rebecca Vaughan (Dalloway, Austen’s Women, I, Elizabeth, Female Gothic).

Directed by Elton Townend Jones (Dalloway, The Unremarkable Death of Marilyn Monroe)

Praise for Dyad Productions:

“A macabre masterpiece. Ghostly, grisly and gorgeous. Don’t miss it” (Three Weeks)

“Truly extraordinary… one of the most exciting young performers on the British stage” (British Theatre Guide)

“Holds the audience in the palm of its hand… a near perfect piece of theatre” (The Scotsman)

“Perfection… Vaughan is simply sublime” (Huffington Post)

Tickets cost £12 / £10 (conc) per person. For further information and to book tickets Click here
