If you’ve got it, haunt it. The Canterville Ghost comes to Southwark
Four audacious artistes perform Oscar Wilde’s spine-chilling ghost story for your delight and delectation.
Interspersed with their own sensational acts, a comedian, a magician, a psychic and their charismatic compere, tell the story of Sir Simon de Canterville, who disappeared mysteriously 300 years ago – after being accused of murder. The Canterville Ghost is a gloriously ghoulish and uproarious vaudeville spectacular from award-winning theatre company Tall Stories.
The Canterville Ghost is booking from 11 October 2022 until 5 November 2022 at Southwark Playhouse, London.
What is The Canterville Ghost about?
When the thoroughly modern Otis family move into Sir Simon’s former residence they’re warned about the fearsome phantom that haunts the Hall. But has anyone warned the Canterville Ghost about them?
