This is a ghost story.
You see?
And it’s only going to get scarier…

– 50 Berkeley Square by Sami Ibrahim

Dim the lights, light some candles, snuggle up with a hot chocolate and join us for a night of ghost stories as we bring you chilling old, new and true tales that confront and exorcise our own doubts and fears at this time of profound uncertainty.

Paul Ready performs the eerie short story The Tell-Tale Heart written by Edgar Allan Poe; our writer-in-residence Sami Ibrahim’s 50 Berkeley Square is performed by Andrius Gaučas, and Abi Zakarian’s folkloric yet ‘honestly told’ I am Karyan Ophidian is performed by Jessie Bedrossian.



The Deep Night, Dark Night film will be available to watch online for 7 days from 31 October, 7.30pm until 7 November, 11:59pm GMT and will appear in your Globe account once you have booked.

You will also be emailed shortly before the event with a link to access the film.

We recommend logging in at least 15 minutes before when you plan to watch the film as you may be held in a short virtual queue. Please make sure you have a good, reliable internet connection.

Within the 7 days, you will be able to watch the films as many times as you wish via the Digital Events page in your Account.
