Buy Tickets The Lighthouse On Shivering Sands

Adapted from the short story by JS Fletcher by Nobby Dimon
Directed by Nobby Dimon
Presented by North Country Theatre & Harrogate Theatre

Another hilarious ripping yarn from the makers of The 39 Steps, A Blood Wedding in Wensleydale & The Rocking Horse Winner.
Strange tales were told of Shivering Sands - of light house keepers gone mad, mermaids and sea monsters, disappearances and hauntings, None of that scared Mordechai Chiddock, but had he known that Jezreel Cornish was one of the keepers he’d never have set foot on that cursed rock. And now the supply boat would not be back for a month and Chiddock knew that either he or Cornish would be dead long before then.
Over the last 15 years from their base in Richmond, North Country Theatre have created many tongue in cheek theatrical adaptations of works by great adventure writers such as Conan Doyle and Kipling, now they turn their attention to spooky sea faring horror – sun, sea, sand and strangled laughter awaits.
Born in Halifax, J S Fletcher is Yorkshire’s most prolific novelist. Whilst earning a living as a Yorkshire Post journalist in the 1920’s and 30’s he wrote over 100 novels mostly detective stories and thrillers. American president Woodrow Wilson described one of his books as the best detective novel he had ever read.

Reviews of 2011's production of The Rocking Horse Winner:

"Had the audience gasping in astonishment and admiration" The Stage

"...plenty of the company's trademark frivolity to enjoy" The Guardian

"Using set and props in a way that you rarely see... brilliant in it simplicity" Yorkshire Post
