Deep Night, Dark Night
Tales from Beyond the Grave
Two sets of eerie evenings will combine the greatest ghost stories from the past, chilling tales from the present (including a new story by Jeanette Winterson), and unnerving real-life accounts of our haunted London.
Amid political and personal chaos, when all seems upsidedown, horror and terror have always inspired writers to look into the darkness and disturbance of a parallel world to help make sense of our own. And no writer more so than Shakespeare. So as Halloween descends and with him as our guide, we yet again turn to our storytellers to help us make sense of it all.
On ’Deep Nights’ we will be performing the first set of tales, and on ‘Dark Nights’ we stage the second set, so make sure you join us for both. Jeanette Winterson’s new story will be performed on Deep Nights (30 October – 2 November).
Deep night, dark night, the silent of the night,
The time of night when Troy was set on fire;
The time when screech-owls cry and ban-dogs howl,
And spirits walk and ghosts break up their graves,
That time best fits the work we have in hand.
— Henry VI Part 2, Act I, scene 4
