As Edith retreats to the attic of the home she shares with her somewhat estranged husband, escaping the "boredom" of yet another social gathering.

She is pursued by a mysterious and handsome partygoer and then joined in addition by her housekeeper, Mrs Threlfold. As midnight approaches, Edith regales the group - not her much-loved tales for children - but, her terrifying early horror stories. Amid this dark and claustrophobic setting a deeper mystery begins to unfold involving all three participants.

Performances at 7.00pm on Saturday 16 and Sunday 17 December 2017.
