... Comments

Adapted from the ghost stories of Charles Dickens, this is a gripping new thriller from the literary master of suspense.


Adapted for the stage by Hugh Janes, this is a brand new play based on some of Charles Dickens’ most spine-tingling tales of the unexpected.  Taking audiences on a journey to the very edge of terror, The Haunting runs at The Everyman from 8th to 13th November.


In an ancient, crumbling mansion, sheltering from the howling winds that tear across the surrounding desolate moorland, two men stumble across a dark and terrifying secret that will change their lives forever...


When a young book dealer, David Filde, is employed by a former associate of his uncle to catalogue an impressive library, he finds an incredible array of rare and antiquated books.  But as a series of strange and unexplained events conspire to keep Filde from his work, he realises that if he is to convince his sceptical employer that the mysterious phenomena he is experiencing are real, they must journey together to the very edge of terror and beyond, to discover the source of the ghostly night-time visitations...


Paul Nicholas’ BAFTA nominated role of Vince Pinner in the classic sitcom Just Good Friends was a key chapter in a career that has successfully covered the full dramatic range.  He went on to rule the roost in the West End across the 90s, taking lead roles in a number of classic productions including Barnum; Rum Tum Tugger in Cats; The Mysterious Mr Love and Catch Me If You Can, in addition to producing and starring in the  hit musical Singin’ In The Rain.


Sean Maguire makes a welcome return to the UK stage after building a hugely successful film and television career in America, which saw his movie Meet The Spartans hit the number 1 spot in the US box office charts.  Sean’s career started at a very young age, which included him playing ‘Tegs’ Ratcliffe in the hugely popular Grange Hill.  He is best known for his roles as Aidan Brosnan in the BBC soap, EastEnders and Marty Dangerfield in the BBC drama Dangerfield.
