“The Ghost Of A Smile”
Adapted and directed by Gavin Robertson. Performed by Nicholas Collett.
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 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” – After a well-lubricated supper in the Old Town of Edinburgh, Jack Martin 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!
