The Ghost of a Smile – 19 Oct

Nicholas Collett and Gavin Robertson present

‘The Ghost of a Smile’

Two ghost stories by Charles Dickens

Tales with a tingle, but also a giggle! Two yarns to chill and charm! Stories with a shiver and a smile! Two of Charles Dickens’ creepy tales – with a comic twist.

‘The Queer 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.

Adapted and directed by Gavin Robertson
Performed by Nicholas Collett

Like ‘The Woman in Black’ – but funnier, with fewer people!
