The Ghost of a Smile
Part of Bury St Edmunds Comedy Festival 2024
- Next Event
- 1st February 2024 7:30pm
About this event
Two of Charles Dickens' tales with a comedy twist! Tales with a tingle but also a giggle!
Two yarns to chill and charm; a traveller encounters a ghostly chair and, in a deserted Edinburgh carriage works, a tipsy reveller is spirited away by well... spirts!
Like 'The Woman in Black', - but funnier, with fewer people!
Adapted and directed by Gavin Robertson and performed by Nicholas Collett. From the team who brought you last year's hilarious detective mash up 'Done to Death, By Jove!'.
Age guidance: 11+
